Updates!

As you've probably noticed, Reading Rocks has been under some heavy revamping for the past several days. Our updates are incredibly exciting and, as our dear readers, you should take advantage of some of our cool new stuff!

We now have tabs at the top of the page to help you navigate through the site and give you some resources we have found useful, such as:
  • The LINKS feature: This is a collection of links to author sites, book sites, other blogs, and excellent YA resources on the web. We urge you to add your own links in the comments and we will add them to our lists.
  • The LIBRARY feature: Using LibraryThing.com, we have created an online "library" of all of our favorite reads from past years. Some we have reviewed on the site, but some are new. This is an excellent resource for finding books to read any time of the year. The variety is huge, but all are worth the read. We have also added the "Virtual Librarian" feature to allow you to search through our library with ease.
  • The REVIEW ARCHIVE feature: To help you find books and reviews easier with our alphabetized list of links and at-a-glance info about each of the books we have reviewed in all of Reading Rocks history.
  • The CONTACT feature: At Reading Rocks, we know there's always room for improvement. So whether your a follower, a blogger, an author, or a member of the general public, this is where you can go to submit your ideas, comments, feedback, and suggestions in an easy, hassle-free manner.
Also, Reading Rocks is going independent! Instead of our old URL, http://readingrocks4me.blogspot.com, we now have a domain name all our own!

But don't worry, readers. The blogspot address will still redirect to our site, so no worries! It may take a few days to take effect, so be patient. :)

Also, we have (finally) decided to change our layout! Please let us know what you think.

  3. I think it's GORGEOUS and wonderful. The only thing that could make it better is if you had a wicked-cool font for your site title. :)

    I remember when I made the change to having my own URL. It's exciting!
