Pretty nice idea. I like it, though I'm not sure I want to sign in with google. Maybe a simple account system like HN?

(I understand the concepts of using google/fb/etc sign ons, but I don't like to have to log into them if I can avoid it. Paranoid they'll know every website I have an account on. sort of..)

I think it'd be better if the recent books took me to the user's book description first (like in the book lists). Then if I wanted to go to Amazon, I could use the link from there.

Yes, at some point I want to greatly improve the login system and offer both direct login but also twitter/google/facebook. Unfortunately it's a little beyond my coding abilities at the moment! Also, as soon as I start storing passwords I need to ensure they're secure and I'm not quite confident enough in my coding abilities for that yet. Still, I'm learning fast so hopefully soon :)

Yes - I'm going to completely change the homepage soon with a much stronger focus on featured/top lists rather than just recent ones. Also, that top books list is pretty rubbish at the moment, I should change it like you say to go to the list with the book on.

Thanks for the feedback
