Is there a way to narrow down search results when browsing kindle books? For example, I was interested in Historical Fiction, & there were over 27,000 books. Can I narrow it down for things like time period or only get books in English? I can see how to sort books by price, etc. That's not what I'm looking for. Also, I'm using an IPad app to read kindle books & browsing books online if that makes a difference. Thanks!

Hmm, that's funny. I can look up "fantasy" and there are subgenres, but no such thing with what you are looking up. I'm sorry, I tried to find a way to narrow down the historical fiction section; hopefully someone else will come by with some suggestions.

you could probably use the time period as a search term - so historical fiction +medieval or something like that

If you put a period in like French Revolution it narrows it down.

Try putting something like 16th century historical fiction in the search bar and kindle store where it asks for it.

Thanks everyone! I'm used to searching for Nook books, which is done a bit differently. (Probably blasphemy here, right ;)?) I'll try typing in a time period in the search box

Try searching by keywords. Go into books and type medieval, historical and romance, for example.
