Bug Description

I wanted to buy a book from kobo and thought I'd buy it through calibre to give the devs a few cents. I confirmed the book existed, ( and searched using the title and got other sites (google, etc.) but no kobo. I deselected all sites except kobo and got "Couldn't find any books matching your query."

I restarted with debug and got

<code>raceback (most recent call last):
  File "mechanize/", line 1238, in do_open
  File "http/", line 1347, in getresponse
  File "http/", line 307, in begin

  File "", line 1241, in recv_into
  File "", line 1099, in read
socket.timeout: The read operation timed out

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
