Is there an easy way to search for Posted Books only, and not all the books listed in the system?

When ever I go to search all of the 50 pages of  books come up and non of the first 20 pages have any books actually listed.

Robt-

I had a hard time figuring this out at first too. If you start a search from the box at the top of any page, it takes you to a results list. Now, on the left hand side of this results page, there is a box with several options you can choose from to refine your search. At the top of this box it says "Search Type" and defaults to "All Books". Just change this to "Posted Books" and click the "Update Results" button. Voila!

There is an option to search available only.

The "book browser" and the Advanced Search both let you choose posted only.  I think Advanced Search even lets you sort by how recently the book was posted.

and when you get the search stuff set on the left side, you can save your search by typing in a name in the box near the end and hitting update.  Then saved searchs are the last item on the search menu.
