When they had the brief description visible while browsing, I could easily recognize books I'd already read, series I'd decided not to read, etc., and quickly move on.
All of that really was the beauty of the old design and made browsing both easy and fun.
Last night I was looking up series by author and trying to do it at BPL was so frustrating! Here's the difference...
Classic View (with title, author, series, series number, availability, brief synopsis, etc.).
With BPL's new design, all I'm able to see is the author, title and book cover -- no series info or series number, no brief description or availability info.
Too much clicking with NextGen!!!!
