Get Books search - extremely fuzzy search results?
Hi! Get Books is a very handy feature, but I can't seem to find an option to disable fuzziness. The attached screenshot shows that a search for "the player of games" yields 89 hits, of which only seven have that exact title (and were the book I was looking for). One of the more bewildering hits was this one: http://weightlessbooks.com/format/bo...paper-stories/. It does not contain anything pertaining to my search string, except for a chapter called "The Dolceola Player".
Did I miss an option to only include exact substring match? If not, I propose an option to enable that for title and author, as calibre is obviously aware of the distinction. A substring match might be best, as a subtitle is sometimes included in the title. The filter could probably just apply to the gui, not the search requests themselves.
If I misunderstood something in the GUI I apologise, and would be thankful for enlightenment as to what I did wrong

You should probably open a bug report, as otherwise user_none (who maintains Get Books) may not see this.
