The problem with the Nook


While I wait for this endless software update to install, let me post a quick rant: My family and I checked out the major ereaders yesterday and there was one thing the Nook really had going against it: you can’t search by author’s name.

WTF, Barnes & Noble? When I typed my own name into the search field, I got endless returns of Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch novels before I reached my own. Does that make any sense? What if I bought and read an author’s book, then went to buy the next one–shouldn’t that author’s name be a link I can click on to take me to the rest of their work?

Apparently, B&N doesn’t think so. That would sell too many books.
