Tips and Tricks

Let's say that you want to find Chuck Palahniuk's "Survivor". I am assuming here that you have no idea how to spell his last name (I had to look it up to write it above). If you search just Survivor as a keyword search or title keyword you will get a couple of thousand results. You can limit this by searching Author Chuck and Title Survivor and you will immediately find what you are looking for (only one match showing). You also could have done Title Survivor and clicked the exact button to get a small search result (three matches).

The same thing can be done for Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. Author King, Title Dark Tower with the title keywords button clicked.
