So, CompletelyNovel has changed a little…
You can now see what Oli and Jon have been working on over the last few weeks. We hope you like our new look!
Have a browse around and let us know what you think.
Some of the new features include increased editorial content, the birth of the CompletelyNovel Book Badger and our Book Lists.
There may be a few rough edges – please let us know if you come across anything that doesn’t work. You will also see that we’ve changed the book upload process while we make some changes – just get in touch if you have any questions about that.
The latest addition to our team is the CompletelyNovel Book Badger. This fine young creature is going to be alerting our users to the latest news in the book industry, recommending books and offering tips to writers. To help him out we have a keen and talented team of editors who will be contributing to the editorial material. We will also be looking for people to submit guest articles which will appear on the front pages of the website…more news on that soon.
Lists, lists, lists
I have to admit, I love lists. They mainly revolve around food i.e. my top five cereals to put in the microwave or best foods to eat with custard (which, incidentally, also includes cereal) but I recently discovered that books are another great thing to put into lists. If you have read High Fidelity by Nick Hornby, you’ll be familiar with the idea of making a top five of pretty much everything. This collective respect for lists has meant that we have added a lovely ‘lists’ feature into the CompletelyNovel website. You can make up book-related lists as a way of sharing your knowledge, taste and thoughts with everyone. You could make a list of
- books you started but never finished (but really should)
- top ten reads for a beach holiday
- top ten books to use as doorstops
- books that made you laugh out loud
…the list goes on!
So, take a moment to think of some of your own lists and add them in (you can add a list by visiting your Library page)!
