Record of Modifications for year 2000: 

12-30-00 All week I've been working on the newest design of this site. This time I'm finally using templates, so it's taking longer to move to the new design initially, but in the future, changes will occur more easily. I'm also reviewing content and am embarrassed to see how many grammatical errors I've made. Sorry if I've offended anyone. Have also renovated index.html and index_page2.html with new logo and content. Next book review will be posted on New Year's Day.
