Download Metadata not working in 6.52

I installed the new software, rebooted, everything I could think of. But when I try to download MD for new books (such as Orange is the New Black) it tells me it can't find them. I try by just the author or just the title, and nothing. Richard Clarke's Cyber War came up empty, also. I tried Richard Clarke and Richard A. Clarke, and both came up empty. And I know he has written other books.

I add some books that Calibre cannot find, but these are bundles or something else out of the ordinary. But Cyber War and Orange are current bestsellers! It couldn't download MD for the Bedwetter, either.

What can I say - I have eclectic tastes.

Is this a bug with 6.52? I have never had this problem before.

There's been another report of it -- look down the way for thendude's post. You might want to join in that discussion so that all the reports and suggestions are in the same place.

I think google books has changed its api for querying metadata, hence the problem. I'll take a look at it before I release 0.6.53 (in the meantime if you setup an isbndb account you will still be able to get metadata)

It seems to have been a temporary google books problem. It's working for me now.
