I tried adding Dr Sleep by Stephen King to my WL (thought I'd done it a month ago, but it's not there!), but the search function can't find the book at all !  (I  used the search parameter "all books")

Discovered this problem when I saw it on another member's WL today and then went to my WL to see what # I am, but nothing!

You need to spell out Doctor and it will work.

I just did an advanced seach using the terms "sleep stephen king" and found several listings looking for "all books".

thanks for the help, both of you. I never would have thought to spell out "doctor" as the covers I have seen all show "Dr."
