I’m trying something new this month for my new nonfiction books update. I started using the list making site Listly to gather my links and present them on my blog.
I’m not sure if I’ll keep doing this for my new nonfiction books update. That will depend on feedback I get.
The nice feature is I can update the list on Listly and it automatically updates my blog post.
I’ll let you know next month what I decide to do. Until then enjoy these great nonfiction books coming out this month.
