Tell us about yourself -- what's important to you in a Book page?
Reading / Borrowing the book
Finding a book in the right language
Seeing if I want to read it (reading the book's description / previewing)
Adding the book to my Reading Log or lists
Reviewing metadata (like isbn, publication date)
My main issues with the previous design was...
The 2 page designs were confusing (work & edition)
It was hard to switch between editions to find the right available book
The info I needed was split between 2 pages
There was too much info "above the fold"
The page loaded too slowly
What do you like about the new page design?
Simpler: everything is on 1 single page
Easier to switch to the book I want
Better page navigation: navigation tab bar
New "Learn More" links to hide/show long descriptions
Borrow/read buttons are always in the same place
The fun effect when I hover over the book cover!
It works better on my phone
