[Vrstream] Bookshare search

I'm pretty sure its a bookshare issue.  I've gotten service error
messages with bookshare before, and sometimes even with bard.  I just
wait a few hours, and try again later.  Contacting bookshare isn't a
bad idea if the issue doesn't resolve itself after trying to do the
bookshare search later.
