Permit sort by Author, Title, Subject or Device/Format
Selecting any Subject and Price criteria will still return potentially thousands of books. Permit sorting the results list by Author (last name alphabetically), by Title (alphabetically), by Subject (any of those appended, i.e. Fiction or Mystery or Classics), or Device/Format (ePub, PDF, etc.).
You can now search for words in only author and title fields by using prefixes author: and title:
Ebooks about Jane Austen: http://www.inkmesh.com/search/?qs=title%3A%22jane+austen%22
Ebooks by William Faulkner: http://www.inkmesh.com/search/?qs=author%3A%22william+faulkner%22&btnE=Find+Ebooks
We are also working on an advanced search UI.
Before you launched this site, Your staff asked for advice from consumers at Mobileread.
You paid no attention.
People need to know the format when they search for a book.
A reader may display EPUB very well, but PDFs may be poor.
Sorting books by the devices that can technically display them rather than allowing users to search for only the formats that display well is not only lazy and tacky on the part of Inkmesh, it is simply bad business.
You should be ashamed.
Would particularly like to select formats to exclude e.g. pdf

For sort categories, I'd add dates too, both original publication date and date they were added to your site.
Also, If you could add a "keyword" category that would attempt to match both the title and author, it would be a great improvement.
This would be extremely helpful. I may have a favorite author and want to check on other titles available.
