Thanks! built in book search/download is a great new feature, makes getting ebook content much simpler.
Feedback: When first used, I was a little confused how to get rid of the book search results after I had downloaded my first book (I wanted to read but 50% of the screen was still consumed by search results). I was then caught out by trying to download several more books in the same activity instance (as the search results are still visible/accessible) with the expectation that each would create a Journal entry - after searching and downloading several texts I realised each is not added to the Journal, just replaces current instance content.
Suggestion would be that the search/download results could auto hide after a book is successfully downloaded, or, if you expect users to search and browse through a few results before sticking with one, allow the results to be hidden via some method (see below).
When trying to get the results list to 'go away', I tried:
1). clearing the book search text input field (nice little (x) for clearing search as in other Sugar UI search areas would be great)
2). then I tried trying to drag the split view out of the way, but seems to be a fixed layout
3). then I tried looking for a toolbar button that might hide/reveal the search results list
4). finally I tried stopping, and then resuming the book Journal entry (which is the current correct solution)
