Travis Fischer | 5 comments I'm writing an application that would let a user search for a book and then add it to their shelves. Using the search.best_book api methods, I can only get one entry (ie searching for Shakespeare only returns Romeo & Juliet). Through the api, do we have access to the full search capabilities? How can I perform a search that retrieves more than one entry?

Ken-ichi | 4 comments I don't believe we have a plain old book search method in our API right now. Anyone else interested in such a method?

David Robins (dbrobins) | 24 comments Certainly. It'd be very useful to e.g. get a list of other books by an author I like.
