Note: This post is one of a series on TOCWOC Reader Tools, tools which allow you the reader to better navigate through what is a rapidly growing blog to find/do exactly what you came here for.
I wanted to point out the next useful tool for TOCWOC – A Civil War Blog readers because I’m not sure exactly how often readers realize it is available. Almost any time a Civil War book is mentioned here at TOCWOC, it is linked to the book’s page at Amazon.com. I do this because when I first started reading about potential Civil War books to buy online, long before I first started blogging, I always wished I had an easy way to buy a book I was interested in. And a lot of the time that wasn’t the case. I ended up going to a place like Amazon or Abebooks to get the book, but it took more effort than was necessary. Here at TOCWOC, just click on the book title and you will almost always be sent to a place where you can buy the book immediately.
As you might imagine, there are a LOT of places where books are mentioned here at TOCWOC. These include (but are not limited to):
TOCWOC Civil War Book Reviews: This page hosts a list of EVERY single book review ever done here at TOCWOC or at my earlier and now defunct American Civil War Gaming & Reading blog.
Jim Durney’s Monthly Civil War Book Notes: Jim, a TOCWOC blogger and a top 500 Amazon.com reviewer, does a monthly roundup of new and upcoming books. Be sure to check his column out, as it really is a great place to get an idea of what’s in the pipeline.
Civil War Magazines and Journals Index: Many of the Civil War magazines and Journals I subscribe to have a book reviews section. Where possible and when relevant, I try to link the titles of the books reviewed directly to Amazon.com for you.
Brett’s Civil War Books Collection: This page is currently under construction, but once it is complete it will list my entire Civil War book collection.
In The Review Queue Series: The “In The Review Queue” series takes a brief look at new books on Brett’s “to be read and reviewed” list of new Civil War books. You can expect not only a link to Amazon.com but also a link to the book’s page at the publisher’s web site.
So next time you see a book title which has a hyperlink attached, be sure to click on the link and check it out!
