Searching Metadata fields e.g. Comments

I use the Comments section of the metadata to store my own notes about a book's contents. Things that might be useful later, keywords even a copy of the contents page or index. This is a quicker way of checking a book rather than opening and finding the relevant section.

What I would like to be able to do is to SEARCH the comments field contents. How can I do this? Maybe there is a plugin?

Thanks.
