Just wanted to take a minute to thank those of you who have purchased Civil War books through the Amazon sidebar widget and my new Civil War Memory library/store, which can be accessed through the link (“Library) in the navigation menu. I recently deleted the widget as part of my regular house cleaning of the sidebar and decided to try out another option. The store allows you to shop through titles that I own or have read at one point or another without leaving my blog. I have yet to enter my entire library and I will do my best to categorize them in a way that is easy to browse. Once that is completed I will play around a bit with the design of the page.
The change seems to have worked as sales have risen quite dramatically over the past week. As you know, I earn a small percentage on each sale, which allows me to purchase new books. I recently ordered my friend, Will Thomas’s new book, The Iron Way: Railroads, the Civil War, and the Making of Modern America, which should arrive today. So, again thanks for your continued support and keep buying books. They are good for you.
