The All-New Notes in the Margin has been uploaded

About an hour ago I took down the old pages of the Notes in the Margin Web site and uploaded an all-new, streamlined version.

For now, the Fiction Notes page is sparse, with no linked reviews for many of the books listed. I apologize for that. I’ll be catching up with the fiction reviews bit by bit over the next several weeks.

The Nonfiction Notes page, however, is complete.

The redesigned site contains a lot of new material and is the first major update since Notes in the Margin went on hiatus in 2005 when I returned to school full time.

If you’re interested in an explanation about why I changed the site design, the long story is that our household has now gone All Macs All the Time. I created the earlier version of the site with a couple of programs specific to the Windows platform. This switch didn’t matter much when I was not adding new material because of school, but now that I’ve been able to start adding some new reviews (even though I’m still a full-time student), I had to find some Mac software that would make that process as painless and quick as possible. I finally decided on a program that would allow me to redesign the entire site. I had originally hoped to redo the whole site before taking down the old version and uploading the new, but redoing everything was a long and tedious process. If I had waited until I finished the entire site, the new material I wanted to add would itself be old before it ever saw the light of day. Therefore, I decided to upload the new site even though I haven’t yet finished catching up with all the fiction reviews.

I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you’ll be able to find something of interest in the new material.

Please let me know what you think of the new site design.
