Has anyone gotten this to work outside of the examples that Amazon provided? I tried searching for "sabermetrics" a term mentioned in Michael Lewis' Moneyball. Out of the 11 results returned, none were Moneyball. Suggestions?

I read an entire Andre Dubus short story by searching for the last line of each third page. "Killings," by the way, on which "In the Bedroom" was based. Highly recommended.

Given that I was inputting exact quotes from the book, though, it always showed up startlingly low in the results.

This thread is closed to new comments. Thanks to everyone who responded.
