As AAR has aged, the way our readers interact with us has changed. Over the past five years, those who read AAR on their mobile devices have now surpassed those who do so on a computer. When we rebooted the site ten years ago, we didn’t focus on making it phone friendly. That’s about to change.

For the past several months, I’ve been working with a team to overhaul the AAR interface, especially on devices. Yesterday they showed me the first screenshots and I am EXCITED. Not only will AAR be easier and more intuitive to use, we’re adding several features we don’t currently have.

Here are just a few of the features you have to look forward to!


A personalized bookshelf where you can keep track of books you’ve read or would like to read.


A dedicated blog archive with a powersearch feature.


An easier to navigate and search Vintage AAR section.

I’ll keep you posted as we continue to develop the site.
