lexile book search

Laurie Mar 23, 2015 05:10PM EDT

The search for books on your website seems to be broken. The results are not what I would expect based on the input I am using. Some popular books, (Wimpy Kids, as an example) never come up, no matter what criteria I use. It seems all results return mostly non-fiction. Is there an alternative search? or can you look at your search and see what's wrong?

Yes, our search query is broken right now. Our engineers are working on getting the issue resolved.

We appreciate your patience.

Apparently it is still broken! I can't bring up books I looked up a few weeks ago. But, I can bring them up if I do a book title + the word lexile on Google!

It does still seemed to be not functioning. I am trying to look up The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall and it returns nothing. I know I have searched it before and it was nothing.

Still not working. Example: Curious George Plants a Seed. In search, I get nothing. Even a search for Curious George only brings up 2 results. But, I can go on Google, type in "Curious George Plants a Seed lexile" and get a link that takes me to the page:
I hope this gets fixed soon. I have a whole library I need to lexile!
