Thanks for the tip.

And you can also use Border's coupons with selected ebooks. At least their book descriptions tell you if you can use the coupon.
At Border's, though, the coupon is applied to the list price, not the sale price.

If you put the publisher's name in quotes, e.g. "Soho Press", the search results improve dramatically.
This also works great for searching for authors - you get exactly the author you want.

Their author search used to work better - it searched only the author field if you clicked on the author name while looking at a book (and apparently added qutoes). Now it gives you the same nonsense results you get from anything else, with hundreds (or thousands) of unrelated "matches".

I noticed that, too. Their new auto complete thing doesn't work any better for authors, either. Still gives the same nonsense.

I agree with you, Koland.

I am having problems with Kobobooks Search Engine...searching for authors are a hassle these days...publishers are ok...though but browsing through can be a little tedious.

What I did was I google "Kobobooks" and "Author" and "Title of the Ebook"...so far, it works ok ( touch wood )...manage to grab a few latest ebooks with this method.

Put your author name in quotes, for example "Louise Penny".

I posted this in another thread, but I'll repeat it here. Borders and Kobo have the same ebookstore, but Borders' search function is far superior. Look for your books at Borders, then buy them at Kobo.

I've gotten a week's worth of 10% discounts.

I've got nothing but 10% off coupons since Tuesday.
I've been using the non contest coupon for 30% off instead.

Thanks but I had those two books issue with 50% off before which is why I am reluctant to use it again.

It works for me without caps.

I've used this coupon many times without any problems, but I can see how you would think it was the coupon if it was the last 2 books you had trouble with.
