So for GET methods, you need to access the resource.

In this case:

GET /books

After you access the resource, the syntax to start the first part of a query, is to use the ? symbol, then equal it to a value

Get /books?type=kindle

Any subsequent query parameter in your GET call, uses the & symbol, then equal it to a value

Get /books?type=kindle&sort=<blah>

Hope this makes sense!
