Today I’m announcing a pet project of mine that I think may interest some of my readers. Any new books? is a free notification service which enables you to subscribe to a series of subjects that interest you and receive weekly emails about new book releases in those categories.
These books are hand-selected, to filter out obvious duds, and include only books that appear to be promising/interesting. Naturally I have included programming among the 42 available categories.
And before you ask, I’ll clear this up from the get-go. This differs from Amazon’s newsletters, because it’s far more systematic. With this service you can be in the loop when it comes to subjects you really care about. I believe Amazon’s occasional newsletters are more targeted to what you’ve recently purchased/viewed (useful, but not the same type of service).
I think this is a useful service, which by the way is absolutely free to use. Try it out.
I sincerely welcome and appreciate your comments, whether in agreement or dissenting with my article. However, trolling will not be tolerated. Comments are automatically closed 15 days after the publication of each article.
