Navigating Sleuth's webstore
Welcome to Sleuth of Baker Street's website
. Use this site to search for and order titles.
First thing, though, is to sign in. (If needed, "Create An Account" first; see "Log In" top right corner.)
There is now a mobile version of the site which should make browsing easier on mobile devices. Navingating through the two versions is similar but there are some differences. All in all, the mobile version seems more intuitive, so visit the site on your phone or iPad and see. On the mobile version, everything on the first page is presented vertically, so be sure to scroll all the way down.
One very useful tip: if ever you get “lost” in the website just “hit the cat.” Touchig the “cat image/Sleuth of Baker Street” logo at the top of the page will bring you back to the home page and you can begin over again.
Another tip: the "Browse" link is little complicated, especially on mobile devices, so leave that for the moment. If you find yourself there, touch the cat!
Have a look at the "Recent Arrivals" or “Forthcoming” selections for suggestions. They are easier to navigate.
Or, use the "Search for anything" box. On desktops there is a box to the left of the “Search for anything” box where you can specify search criterion: keyword, title, author, but it defaults to keyword on mobile devices. Use keyword, would be my suggestion. For example, the keywords “Connelly innocence” would return all editions of Michael Connelly
’s The Law of Innocence
. Author and titles are more exacting.
The View version: at the bottom of the page on mobile devices and to the left on desktop, is the View version of the latest newsletter. Either way, go down to “See more” and select it. (On desktops, then select “View all” and finally, the “Detailed” display (the middle icon.)) At that point, all the titles are presented vertically.
Select any cover and get more information. "Add to cart" and then "Checkout Now" or hit the shopping cart symbol. Might look intimidating, but it's pretty simple. Play with it; you won't break anything!
Play around with the site and if you have any problems, call or e-mail and we'll walk you through them.
A caution. There may be many editions or formats for a particular title--hardcover, paperback, audio, etc--so have a careful look before adding to your cart. There is a running total of the number of books in your cart and deleting from the cart is simple.
