The girl in the picture there was taken from a clipart gallery, not licensed for commercial use. If someone feels like making 20 bucks, submit a picture of yourself doing something with a book (like reading or holding it). If I like it, I'll put it on the site and send you a PayPal.

The Pros: You get paid triple the minimum wage for free attention -- the photo will be placed on the web site and on every packing slip sent nationwide. You will be the "face" of Gulati Books. OMG SO EXCITING CHOO CHOO.

The Cons: I will own the picture, so I won't be paying royalties and you can't sell the picture to anyone else.

Otherwise, I'll pay an artist to finish and refine a logo a friend designed for me, which is basically a brown kid reading a book.

Check with Urbanski. He has a lot of artistic talent. Check his avatar of the Cadillac crest.

Jes - on your "Browse Inventory" page, I'd suggest making the link)s_ to Amazon open in a new window - that way, you don't send people away from your site. Personal preference, but I hate it when a link takes me AWAY from the page I'm coming from. I forget sometimes, and close the page, and I've lost the original page I came from, knowhutImean?

Also, your mention of "Free Books" doesn't make any reference as to how or where to get them ?

Nice warm design on the site itself.
You should see if there is a way to get your Amazon page to use the CSS from your homepage (maybe set the booklist up on your site with only checkout being handled through Amazon). Makes it much more professional looking and wouldn't contrast so bad when going to the book list.

It looks as if you used an image map for hyperlinking the text underneath the photo of the girl. Looks great, but I think you need to make the map areas larger so the whole text becomes hyperlinked (when I hold my mouse over the text the bottom of the text remains black instead of changing to brown).
I didn't cheak your html source code, no time right now.

Just a visual thing to be tweaked.... no biggie.

I like that you kept resolution for people with stone age 800x600 resolutions, there are a lot of people out there already.

If you don't have a counter yet then let me suggest www.statcounter.com I use that for my site and has a alot of cool options. It's free unless you get a crapload of pageloads.

Nice job!
