Some suggestions for improving the website

I would like to suggest some improvements to the website:

1) 'Random reviews'. This could be shown in book reviews' page. At least I often click on random things in other websites. That would probably help to increase popularity of reviews (especially old ones, as now it is easier to find recent ones in the book reviews' page).
Random books could also be shown somewhere but I am not sure if it would be interesting.

2) Also there could be such thing as 'Recommended review'. OBC members could recommend very good reviews and there would be some 5 recently recommended reviews (with nickname of user that recommended it) displayed somewhere (perhaps in book reviews' page). And again I am not sure if 'Recommended book' is a good idea (it would work the same way).

I'm new here but I would like to see some revamping of the layout of this website, just the styling. This is a great website but it needs some improvement on the looks especially those nav buttons and the dropdowns.
