on your books page. Must go to Home page to do search to locate a book I have already entered in my list.

We'll need more specifics here. What search/es are you running in "Your books" that you're not finding? Also, can you verify which collection/s you're searching? Thanks!

I'm not sure if my issue is the same as reported by Bettesbooks.

Tonight, whatever search term I enter in the "Search site" box at the top of the page, I get "no results".
The only exception is if I click on the "all collections" option to restrict the search to my own books.

same problem as kleh. Site search is not working. Takes a long time to repaint page and indicate search is in progress, then a long time showing search in progress symbol, then no search results.

I got curious, and searched for an author name that is also in my library. It is exactly as reported, with no results, not even suggestions, after it completes. I searched for Greg Bear, and, as I suspected, the touchstones are not working either.

"Greg Bear" — no results

I've tried Firefox, and Internet Explorer, and the results are consistently empty.

At this point, it seems to be working. One of our developers confirms, Site Search had some trouble starting shortly before >3 kleh: posted. Let me know if you're still seeing issues?

Sorry. ccatalfo worked a problem tonight. It ended by restarting the server.
