Book search not returning any results

Recently I’ve done two searches for books by title and author in the book search and I’m not finding them. Even an ISBN search doesn’t bring them up.

  • Example 1: “Leave the World Behind” by Rumaan Alam (I gave up and added this one and uploaded a cover image)
  • Example 2: “Slow Horses” by Mick Herron

These are both popular books, so I know it’s not a case of obscurity. To test this theory, I entered “Sherlock Holmes” and … nothing comes up. uses Open Library to look up books, and Slow Horses, for example, shows up there. So, this is probably a temporary issue with the communication between and Open Library. Ping @manton.

Maybe a temporary problem. I just searched for all of those and I’m seeing results.

Yes, confirming that book search now works. Thanks.

Is it possible to build in some error messages for when external resources aren’t available?
