For avid book lovers everywhere, Any New Books? is an application that shouldn’t be missed. The notification service lets users know when new books are being released in the categories they enjoy most. But rather than flooding its subscribers’ inboxes with hundreds of book each week, Any New Books? actually employs human editors to pick and choose the best of each week’s new releases in dozens of different categories.
When you sign up for Any New Books?, you’ll be asked to select a handful of your favorite book genres. Although Any New Books? recommends new users select four or five categories at most, the actual number of you select is up to you. From that point, you wait. New book notification emails are sent to users on Wednesdays or Thursdays, depending on the category, and you can expect to receive a separate email for each genre you selected. When your book recommendation email finally arrives, you can open it up to find a list of new releases and staff recommendations. Alongside a photo of the cover of each book, you’ll find all the necessary information, such as the author, ISBN, and estimated price. Click on the title of any book that looks interesting to find out more, or purchase is through Amazon.com.
For people who use Kindle, Any New Books? is especially helpful. The application will notify users who’ve selected Kindle as a preferred genre of all the latest digital releases that they might be interested in. Any New Books? also makes it easy to share book recommendations with friends via Twitter or Facebook. For serious readers who hate missing out on the latest releases, using Any New Books? is a sure-fire way to stay in the loop and ahead of your friends.
