As of this afternoon, a project that has been in the works for the last months has finally gone live. The reBOOKed site has been completely redesigned to greatly increase usability and streamline operation.

The new site design is based on bootstrap, a free design scaffolding provided by the fine folks at Twitter and suggested to reBOOKed in a post at reddit, where the commentators do not pull their punches when they find your site design "horrendous". The new design should be more intuitive and simpler. Let us know what you think.

As a part of the new design, the requirement that users manually enter the titles, authors, and Amazon ASINs of their books has been eliminated. The site is now fully integrated with the Amazon.Com database and will now give you a list of valid titles from Amazon when you can't find the book on reBOOKed. My daughter has already tried it will an obscure dinosaur-themed book that she had on her shelf, and it worked like a charm. Again, this is all in an attempt to make the site easier to use.

We have over 200 users now! Keep 'em coming! The more of your friends you can convince to use the site, the better it gets.

Thank you as always for the support and encouraging words.
