Why I <3 Amazon.com

Lady calls with several book requests. She would like to reserve Black Music. "Black Music?" I question. Yes. I search our catalog, but find nothing at least in a novel format. I try Amazon.com. My first few tries yield no results. I use the author's name and come up with Beach Music. Her: "Oh. That must be it."

Next request: Marcy Dobbs Investigator. Thanks to Amazon again, I finally determine that she means Maisie Dobbs: a novel in which Maisie, presumably, is an investigator.

Comments:
i love amazon for the same reason. had a request today for Kate Grenville's "quiet river" 2005. Quiet River was published by someone else about 20yrs ago... Worked out she wants "The silent river...." go figure..
