I suggest you ...

improve search

ie 'a cold blooded business' search doesn't find 'a cold-blooded business' -is it possible to ignore hypens and other punctuation characters in the titles database?

        I have had a lot of problems with title searches lately. I was trying to find the book 'The Lover's Dictionary'. I tried the search a number of different ways and eventually only found the book by searching for the author (David Levithan). The only way I was able to find the book with a title search was by entering in the FULL title as it's listed here: "The Lover's Dictionary: A Love Story in 185 Definitions".

        I've even had problem where I can't find a book if I put in the title but leave out a leading article. For example 'Different Girl' doesn't bring up anything, but 'The Different Girl' does.
