Is there an option for searching by tags?

I'd love to be able to do search that looks for multiple tags.  For example, I'd love to search for "Fantasy Series" and "1st in Series".  The only way I can actually find to get a list of books based upon tags, is to search for a book that I already know matches the description of the tag, and then click on the tag.

Yes, there is!  Go to Community -- Club Tag Cloud & there they all are (or at least the most used).

That doesn't really work for what I was thinking -- epecially since one of the tags I wanted to search for was not in the 'cloud', but thanks for the tip.

Do you have a book tagged with the tag you want to search?  You can go into My Lists and then My Tags and it will let you see all the books with that tag.  That includes books that other people have tagged with the same tag.

I don't think there is a way to search for multiple tags at once. But maybe you could suggest it to PBS.
