Our new top menu makes it easy to navigate to different types of content, including news, featured books (including our popular Book of the Month series), user stories, campaigns (like Monsters are Real and Garden Stories), and technical updates.

Additionally, to reduce scrolling and provide a cleaner interface, each post will display an excerpt with the option to “continue reading” to view the full post.
