    I'm sure if you search for "books" in your favorite search engine you will find lots of sites that deal with books.

    A better way to start, I feel, is to look at what content he needs to present, and how it can best be organized, and let a design naturally arise from that.

    How about a splash screen with a background image of a bookcase with his books as images that can be linked to that book's page?

    I think that'd be cool. You could have navigation on the top for bio, contact, etc.

    You could also just limit the website to the splash screen w/ Javascript pop-ups for summaries, reviews, downloading, etc.

    Good luck.

    I couldn't quite tell you! I'll have to think about that when my academics aren't such a pressing concern late at night

    Edit: Good point, TB

    Hello,Thank you all very nice Ideas it opens the closed loop I was looping in
    what do think about this ?
    - Header with title.
    - Splash screen ( Or Slideshow to present the new books or top books)
    - A book could be displayed either in a table as a list or the book covers with descriptions or we give the user the two options
    - Sidebar with Mailing list
    - The footer
