Yup, every time you search you press Library first... Elegant, huh? They're trying to sell books, of course they're going to default to that behavior.

The default place to search depends on your current location:

If you are in the bookstore, default is to search the bookstore.
If you ae in the library, default is to search the library.
If you are in a book, default is to search for a word in the book.

The change with 2.6.1 just happens when you are at the home screen. Previous default was to search the library, 2.6.1 default is to search the bookstore.

Only place mine defaults to the library is in the book list. Defaults to the bookstore in the shelf list.

And it is easier to just chose library from any screen than to navigate to the book list so it will default there.

Previous to 2.5... That's the way it works in 2.5.2, and I hate it. If my wifi is disconnected, it shouldn't default to the store. Ever.
