I posted "If Momma ain't happy,Ain't Nobody happy" yesterday. I did a search to find it  today and was told it wasn't in the system. I did an advanced serch and found it. But just a search all books , by the book title and by the author's name tells me it isn't  listed . It is on my book shelf.  Why doesn't it show up when I do a search ????

I did a search with just the first part and it came up and then with the whole thing and it worked.

It is listed under "If Mama Ain't Happy, Ain't Nobody Happy."  Different spelling.

Not sure if it's accurate or not, Judy, but there is a spacing difference in what you typed and what Marsha has. If when you looked for it the first time and didn't find it, you didn't put the space between the phrases, you will not find it. Just a thought.

Thanks, I tried it with the different spelling and found it too. DUH !!  Up to late with kids sleepover I guess.  I didn't think it usually took that long for a posted book to go in the system.
