Just a little feedback on one of the "new" features:

I have a relatively large computer screen and the pictures of the recently posted and recently swapped books on the home page are never clear.  I have thought before that this feature seems rather messy since the pics don't show up and because they are not visible, not very helpful.  I have waited to give feedback on this thinking that it might be a glitch that would be fixed, but it seems that blurry is the final product.

Just my 2 cents.

I've noticed that too, the covers are never clear.  If you mouse over them though, you get a pop up with info about the book.

I absolutely hate the thumbnail bookcovers.  They clutter up my screen, and they're way too small and blurry to give any information.   I'd actually like to find out what "Members who ordered your book also ordered..." which is also in thumbnail, but waiting for the popup to load with the book title is an incredible waste of time.    It would be SO much simpler, more useful and cleaner just to have text labels, not the teensy bookcover graphics.

Mine are clear.  I like the graphics personally - I guess I am visual.

It would be nice if it stopped putting thumbnails of ones w/no book cover picture.  The pictures don't bother me.  But one time recently there were like 5 w/no cover picture.  That gave me no inspiration to check into them.
