Dear Members,

Check out the fresh new look on the Home Page!  Once again, we have been busy working behind the scenes on a simpler and easier-to-use design.  Some of you may remember the surveys that went out earlier this year... one of the things that members wanted was some additional features on the Home Page.  We think that you will find this new functional design to be of great benefit to all of us.

The new Carousels allow you to browse more books by scrolling through your favorite genres and more.  You can find more books to request or find some new books at super-low prices!   Up in the top right corner under the "Welcome Back" box, you can see all the action items at a glance.   Moving down the page, you can Connect with all of your friends on the site.  And check out the New Member sections, What's Happening, and the Latest Book Reviews - all available with a new scroll feature so that you can check out all the latest news. 

We hope you like the changes as much as we do.  All the best and happy reading to you all!


and the PaperBackSwap Team

It looks good!! I like the little Explore bubble with the blue books. And I have been peeking at the May We Suggest part too!

When I get a new Personal Message the little red shout box laps up over the top menu bar, next to the [F]acebook [T]witter [A]mazon.

And I can't get the Swap Books part to work right... Books Available to Order from Club Members in [drop down menu] - this works ok!

But the second part Books Available in ... the first 8 with covers load, but when I hit the arrow it just loads and loads and loads... to nothing.

I look forward to reading the newest reviews.  Just noticed that the thumbs up or down voting tools are gone.  Is this considered no longer useful?   D.

I'm probably just not seeing it, but the section where I had a list of about 12 favorite areas set is changed - is there a way to  have more than 3 favorite genres?

Other than that, the new page looks great!

I keep trying to narrow the page so I won't have to scroll back and forth.  It doesn't work!  :(

Not sure what you're looking for Karen.  My Reminder List has the button to move to Wishlist, Tag, or add a Note.  In addition to the Order if it's available in the sytem, and Buy From Amazon if it's not.  What option are you missing?

ETA - If you're looking for Mail to a Friend, just click on the book - that option is available from the main page for your book.
