Looking for "Michael Wanner" with the entry "Wanner" there is no hit. On the site I find "Endstation", "Tödlicher Geburtstag".
I think this is caused by the way get books does searches. Most sites don't have the ability to specify where the words are to be found, so get books uses a general keyword search and returns the first N that the store provides (N is chosen in get books configuration). For that reason it is better to use more words so that the store search engine will find closer matches.

When I search for author Wanner with returned items count set to 20 I get the following results. Both Endstation (by Ulrike Wanner) and Tödlicher Geburtstag by Michael Wanner are on the list.

Attachment 129525

I don't see any way to do better.
I agree on better matches by more search words. Sometimes I am glad to get _any_ match... But first I can give the words I know only.
Using "Jürgen" and "Seibold" I get the same result, too. But the search for "Wanner" does not change.
Where in the settings can I change "N"? I cannot find (see attachment)

Suggestions for Austria

Hello,

as an Austrian user, I would like to have access to

thalia.at and
heyn.at

As these sites are in German, I would assist with translations, questions etc. if necessary.

Kind regards,

Franz

Also weltbild.de

every users with a library card can have 3 ebooks for month/ or one for 13 days

Calibre Kobo

I have an HP Pavilion with Windows. I use Calibre to get books from Kobo. I use to use Linux Mint on my old computer and everything worked fine. Now with my new system, When I use Calibre and Get Books, I get the menu with all on the book stores listed. When I choose Kobo, or many of the other book stores, I get a new window that is blank. Can anyone help?

The Dutch store http://eboektekoop.nl/ has many books with 'digital watermark'.

I'd love it if it were included.

store request

Per instructions from blog.calibre-book.com, I'd like to request Pakt books (https://www.packtpub.com/packt/offers/free-learning) added to the list of stores. Thanks!
