Big Change - continuing the ACHUKA story

| No Comments

Two years ago, the site broadened its perspective and ceased being an exclusively children's books site. It added two new sections, one for adult titles (focusing on Photography, Poetry and Art) and another one devoted to self-published titles and eBooks.

Once again, the empty space was originally filled with an Amazon widget slideshow.

Those Amazon widgets have been a mixed blessing. They are remarkably easy to update and maintain, and they display really well on a fullsize PC screen. But being flash-based they are not Apple friendly, and are not viewable on mobiles.

They have also proved to be very ineffective in encouraging click-throughs.

So the new site has eliminated widgets altogether, and has a simple grid design of static book jackets.

Another big change coming next week is that from Monday each title will have a link through to Waterstones as well as to Amazon.

What the new booklinks will look like...
