Change is Coming: Making changes for better reviews and easier reading

I have been listening to your suggestions to make Chapter One Book Reviews work better for you. So now I am making a few upgrades to my system that should provide a better product for you.

• Although Times is a standard typeface and one of the more legible in print, the Internet does not behave the same as the printed page. Therefore I will be changing the entries to a san serif font — probably stick with Helvetica — to make them easier to read online.

• You'll notice on my next review that the entry begins with a very short review synopsis. This should make things quick and easy for you. 

• Each review will also include a number rating system. You will be able to find this number directly after the review synopsis. The ratings will be 1 – 5 with 5 being the best and 1 being the worst. A couple keywords will also be included to provide information as to why the score was given. (ex. 3 - peril, language)

• A more in depth review will follow the short stuff for those interested in learning more about the book.

I have some more ideas I would like to implement and will continue to work on those in the coming months. Thank you. - McGeath
