Bookbrowse Unveils Facelift

Bookbrowse, “your guide to exceptional books,” today unveiled a complete redesign that promises to bring the online publication’s content to readers in a fresher, more effective style.

“Our original site layout was effective,” says Bookbrowse founder and CEO Davina Morgan-Witts, “but over time had begun to look outdated. As we were constantly adding new content and capabilities, the older layout was becoming more difficult and complicated to use. We needed to go back to our core value -- recommending only the best current books and providing all of the information a visitor needs to find the book that’s just right for them -- and rebuild around that user-centric objective.”

Morgan-Witts adds that the 11-year-old site will continue to offer in-depth reviews and the stories behind the books as well as previews of upcoming books, their bank of author bios and interviews as well as advice on starting and running a book club and other book club rich features and the ability to browse and cross reference by more than 70 themes, including by time period and geographical setting.

“Initial feedback has been excellent,” says Morgan-Witts of the redesign. “We set ourselves aggressive targets, and I am proud to say that we have met them.”

The newly redesigned Bookbrowse is here. The current week’s recommendations are here. Information on the enhanced content available to Bookbrowse members is here.
