Store suggestion - searches should match authors
Kobo needs to improve the search engine on the book store. If I search "arthur c clarke" I get 504 results although only 5 on the first page are from Arthur C Clarke. The search engine should be smart enough to realise the search I entered exactly matches an author. Although that would likely only return 5 hits so I can sort of understand why they don't want the search engine to work like this.

Did you put the quotes in the search box? It's not perfect, but it's better - there were only 25 matches instead of 500 when I tried that.

Also, if you click on the author's name of one of the books on the screen it does a search that seems to match against author better than just typing the author's name in the search box.
