Hi everyone!

Just to see if there was any change between the time that Jamie first said she didn't find any Joan Collins books and when I tried, our results are the same.

I decided to try searching for Joan Collins' books by title, so I went to Amazon.com and did a search on Joan Collins so that I would have her book titles to search for on Bookshare. Every search title did not find anything by Joan Collins. Either I got other authors or no results in the advanced searches.

Just for the heck of it, since I think Joan and Jackie are sisters, I did a search for Jackie Collins and came up with eleven results that were all Jackie's. It's incredible that there are apparently no Joan Collins books on Bookshare.

If you go into advanced search and put joan collins into the author box and do a search, you don't get Joan Collins at all.

You get John J. Collins and <http://www.bookshare.org/browse/author?key=Millicent%20Collinsworth>Millicent Collinsworth <http://www.bookshare.org/browse/author?key=Jan%20Winebrenner>Jan Winebrenner

I did it several times to make sure I wasn't typing wrong or something. That's all I get. No Joan Collins and I know darned well there are Joan Collins books in the collection.
