I replied to a message in the General forum, but thought I'd post my response here as well.
There seems to be a problem with the nook device search feature. People were saying they were getting no results from searching, so I thought I'd try it myself.
I just did "Shop" -> "Search" and then entered "ringo" (no quotes)
I expected lots of hits on John Ringo - instead I have 4 matches. All of them are free books. All non-fiction. None by John Ringo

I searched in ebooks for John Grisham and Stephen King and received "no products found" for John Grisham and a list of free books for Stephen King.
Even browsing the subject as Fiction is mostly free books.
I hope its fixed soon.

I just posted a new thread and then saw this one. I'm having the same problem. At least I know it's not just me. It might be because they're working on the big update coming out.

It's not just searching by author. Hadn't used my Nook in awhile since I go through phases where I read constantly then lay off for a bit. Decided to pick up the Dexter series, searching "Dexter" or any of the book titles specifically either got nothing(latter), or loads of free books(former). Not very thrilled about this.

I'm having the same issue, I thought I was going crazy. A search for "the subtle knife" will return the book on the b&n website, but just returns a book about the trilogy on the nook.

Last night when I looked at My Daily, they were talking about books by Kate Morton. I tried four time to search for her books and each time I got either "0 matches" or other authors with the same last name.
I then went back in and tried to search by one of her books by exact title......nothing!
