Simply Read is a minimalist blog theme with a huge home page slider and a masonry style layout for latest posts. It also has a full width static page template, separate widget areas for pages and posts, social media links, optional author bios and simple color scheme options to make customizing the theme very easy.

There is no need for a screenshot because this site is using the theme and serves as a pretty complete demo.

This theme is compatible with WordPress Version 3.4 and above and it supports the new theme customization API.

All the image graphics and icons bundled with this theme are created by the author and licensed under the GPL, as is the whole theme itself.

Supported browsers: Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari and IE9+ (Some css3 styles like shadows and rounder corners are not supported by IE8 and below).
