Is there anyway PBS can put in a keyword search in the Box O Books section?

The regular search area has it and I think it would make my search much easier.


I'm looking for books on the Holocaust, I put in a genre seach for history (sub Europe or sub Jewish)  it brings up everyone who has any books in those history genres then I have to open and search everyones bookshelf that comes up from the search only to find out that they have books that have nothing to do with what I am looking for (a total waste of my time). Especially if there are 200 boxers that have 1 book in that genre.  Open.... search.... close.... next .  In the end you find out that only 10 out of 200 boxers that have books in that genre have anything you are interested in.


If there was a keyword search box I could just type in a keyword like Holocaust or Concentration Camp etc. and all the books that have anything to do with that keyword are brought up.

If you looking for a series of book such as lol Dragonlance you can type that in and it works but not the other way.

You need to contact PBS with your suggestions.  THey don't really hang out on the boards that much.
