Currently trying to redesign the layout of my Wordpress blog

I'm doing this between reading and writing today, but my book blog was long due for a massive overhaul.  I'll probably be reading a little later today as well as writing.  I'm also trying to see if I can redesign some of my review posts because I used to use Goodreads's HTML format for posts, but I'm trying to strip that out now and use something of my own system (mainly because Goodreads does not have half-star ratings and I usually bump up with the display. Also because I'm finding I'm wanting to do more with the posts than simply copy pasta-ing the code.)
