    Hi guys i have a site www.booktips.in It is in the reference and education niche.With the magazine pro theme(genesis). I would like a bit of design advice. My site consists of two important parts. One is review of good iitjee books(and i currently offer free download links) and the other is latest news on iitjee. The second part is taken care of. But i think i should rework in the first part. I have reviewed them but i would like a few alterations on how i present them to the viewers. If you take a look at the bottom part of my site you'll see 3 books reviewed. But instead i want to present this in a different way. Currently it isn't highlighted and i can't put the excerpts of reviews of all the books in the homepage. Instead i want my homepage to link to a seperate books page where i would list all books according to their category(like physics,chemistry..) but maybe only their pictures and i would like to add a rating maybe out of 5. And when the user clicks it he's taken to the respective pages where a complete review is offered along with their download links. In these pages i want to add flipkart and amazon affiliate links so if viewers want they might purchase hard copy.

    This is how it currently looks(the reviewed books part in homepage)

    You might see that it is currently limited to three posts(i know i can add more by configuring the genesis related posts widget) but still i can't add 100 right.
    I want a way to put all books with their respective categories in one single page.

    This is how it looks when i open up a review of a particular book

    Currently there are no affiliate links i'll want a good plugin that will pull the cost along with my affiliate links and link them to sites such as flipkart, amazon. I also want a rating system where viewers can rate the books.

    Please help me!

    Yeah, I think you should hire a good Web-designer. If your website is created by Wordpress and self hosted, you can download themes at templategraphy that provides awesome themes and you also can visit adsgraphy
    where you can find how to show affiliate's content.

    This looks real simple. You should work more on it use flat ui colors and simple. Page like this looks like some amateur made it.

    First thing you have to do is get a better theme before worrying about anything else,
