Today's the day when we are launching the new format of Shiny New Books. Here's what we say on the front page:
We’re back! We have a new site design and a new way of sharing our content with our readers. We’re changing from our former ‘magazine’ format, in which we published lots of new pages in big batches every couple of months (and giving you too much to read in one sitting), to continuous posting.
Each Tuesday and Thursday, we’ll publish new reviews and articles – sometimes just one post, occasionally more – for our first fortnight, we have multiple posts lined up.
This will be more manageable for Shiny Eds Harriet and Annabel, but will also give us a better opportunity to promote our reviews and articles and achieve a bigger readership for the individual posts. We will keep to our original remit of reviewing books published during the previous 3-4 months, but can also be more responsive to scheduling our reviews closer to publication dates where practicable. Our regular newsletter will become a monthly review – you can sign up on the sidebar.
We hope you’ll enjoy the new style Shiny New Books. Please do tell us what you think – leave a comment or e-mail us, we love hearing from you. We particularly look forward to welcoming you as regular visitors.
These three reviews are up today:
Do go and check it all out. We'd love to know what you think of the new format.
