When I'm on the Android or iOS app, and I run a search, I almost always want to search within the book I'm reading. But this is quite difficult to do in the app currently.

Most of the time, the app seems to default to searching my Entire Library. Then I have to search for the book I'm reading in the dropdown list. Sometimes I've not found it there and moved on. Other times I have tried to guess at which one it could be from a dropdown list of cryptic abbreviations that is very partial and not in any apparent order. 

As it's currently implemented, the Entire Library search in the app is almost never useful, as most words will return too many results in too many resources to be of any use, the titles of books are oftentimes not understandable in their abbreviated form, and refining and organizing search results is currently not easy or oftentimes even possible because of the limited syntax and view options.

So, I would love it if the app would search by default in the book you are currently reading (as pretty much all reader apps do). I know it's what I almost always want to do when I search in the app, and given the behavior of other ereader apps, my guess is it's what most other people would like and expect as well.

Thanks!

If you notice when you search it lists "my entire library". There is a drop down menu that lets you choose recent books you've had open, including the one you have open. Select that book and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps. Steve
