Last week, Amazon added the ability to search the full text of books. This seems like a great idea but it is not without its annoyances. One used to be able to type in an author name and retrieve the author’s works very quickly. Now, unless you use advanced search, these results get mixed in with the full text results. It almost seems like full text search should be an advanced search option as opposed to the default.
