As a book-lover, I’ve spent the past few months sharing my reading lists with many of you, but I’ve grown increasingly frustrated by that same linear, chronological, non-visual structure of this page. So I’m thrilled to introduce a new look and feel, and I hope, lovely and highly usable too. This perpetual bookshelf invites you to explore the extensive book archive in a visual, and more user-friendly way.
Clicking each book on the shelf will reveal more about the book. The “Learn more about this book” link will take you to the main page of the respective book, where you can find further context, additional images, reviews from this community, quotes, and more.
To the left of each expanded book, you’ll see a list of tags. Clicking any of them will take you to a shelf of all books on that subject. To make your search for a new book to read easier, I´ve created several reading lists that you can use to navigate by topic of interest.
Support of local book stores
All of the recommendations on my shelf are connected to Bookshop.org – buying your next book read there will help independent, local book stores thrive.
You can follow My Bookshelf by signing up, or access it anytime from the sidebar link (top left) here on Lisanneswart.com. Keep this section on top of mind in the upcoming months, because there will be more to share about the look and feel and user experience of this site.
