In HELP it says you can browse by genre by clicking on SEARCH in the toolbar and then clicking on BROWSE BY GENRE. When I do this, there is NO such choice. I would really like to be able to do this. Is it just not working, or what?

Go to Advanced search and this option will come up on the search screen.

Well, I just tried it. It told me that there were NO posted mysteries! That just can't be correct.

Never mind. I had not deleted a previous keyword search. It was combining the two. Now it works.

MRG -- there is a Browse by Genre tab if you click on the Search menu button.

Don't click on anything in the pulldown menu. Just click on Search on the left there between Home and My Account, not the Search button on the right side of the banner. The second tab is Browse by Genre.

Well, that was why I posted the question originally. Help SAYS there will be a Browse by Genre tab if I do that, but one does NOT show up for me. It may sound strange to you if you see one on your computer, but one does not show up on mine. Sigh.

That is strange. What do you have? Here's what I see:

Search

Advanced Search - Books Posted Today - NYT Best Seller List - Pulitzer Prize Winners - Newbery Medal Winners

I just figured it out. I was putting the pointer over it, and that did not show a choice of Books by Genre.

 

HOWEVER, when I CLICK on it, then it DOES show Books by Genre.

 

Mystery solved!  =^..^=
