Here are some suggestions to make do:
Except the Stay Connected section which redirects to the Penguin India Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages, there is no social network integration to share book titles with friends.
In stead of catalogue style, Penguin should provide information on book's page numbers, ISBN, binding type and language.
No options for alerts by the users as well as by the Penguin Books India when a book is available in the bookshelf.
It does not give links to e-book stores such as Amazon's Kindle or Apple's iBook.
In stead of slider control page navigation style, the excerpts can be shown in a simple and noraml page turn mechanism.
