From the STI icon (the same place the list of possibilities): Customize
You can add any new source, hide extras...

@theducks - I suspect the OP is referring to this "search the internet"

Pretty sure that one is built in as I don't have the optional plugin installed, I'm not sure it has any settings to add additional sites.

The solution might be for the OP to use the optional plugin and initiate the search from the book list rather than book details.

No, there is no way to add sources to that list. If you need custom sources, use the Search The Internet plugin which has that capability.

Well, I have been using Kiwidude's pi for so long, I had forgotten there was even a builtin. (I also use his Openwith)
