All Nimble books now available in online store

I’ve finished updating the Nimble Books online bookstore and all 317 Nimble published books are now available once again.

Classic Bookstore

This is referred to as the “Classic Bookstore” to distinguish from the “Algorithmic Bookstore”, which is coming soon.

Two limitations that I mean to remove in future:

  1. the store currently presents print and Kindle editions on separate pages.
  2. I have not yet added category & genre filters. So, if you are looking for a particular book, use the “search” bar. 

Nimble Books store operational again

Good news, the Nimble Books online store is operational once more.  At present, there is just one book: WHY THE USS THRESHER (SSN-593) WAS LOST by Bruce Rule, but over the course of the next few months I will add the entire backlist (319 titles). In the meantime, if you are a pal, or a naval history enthusiast, or both, you can do me a big favor by ordering a copy — I need a few live tests to be sure things are working correctly!

Rebooting the Nimble Books website

There have been quite a few transitions in my life since I founded Nimble Books in 2006, and along the way the Nimble Books website got caught in the shuffle. Since I do intend to keep operating Nimble Books for the foreseeable future, I am standing up the website once again.  There is a ton of great content that I had available via previous iterations of the website that I would like to resurrect, but that depends on whether a) I can find my SQL backups (so far, no joy) and b) I can import them successfully (there were non-standard data structures due to plugins). In the meantime, content here will be sparse. I will begin with adding the current front-list books to the online store.
