Waterstone’s eBook Site: FAIL!
Really, how can a site based on computers be so completely screwed-up in its options?
I can sort A-Z or Z-A — by Book Title.
I cannot sort at all on Author Name. WTF?!
And get this: If I click on an author’s name in eBooks, I get all printed books and eBooks for that author! How stupidly unhelpful is that when wanting just an eBook?
I can’t even do Search on Author Name because Search is site-universal, meaning I wind up getting results for printed books, when all I want are eBook results!
Does anyone — anyone at all — with a frikkin fully-functioning brain sit down and vet these things before launch?! This isn’t, say, trying to decode the mysteries of human DNA or launching a probe into outer space. For God’s sake, computers are made to sort and to search through information! Why cripple that ability?!
At some point there will be a Cluster of Suits over at Waterstone’s wondering why eBook sales are utter shit. Clue: You are stopping people from being able to buy what they want!
Starving to death at the door of Waterstone’s eBook store!
