New Preview Links

It seems like everyone really likes our book preview links. Are you finding useful things in them? Or, are they answering any of your questions about the book? One of the issues that I am constantly seeing is that customers are not able to "browse" though books online before buying them, so I hope that this helps alleviate some of the issues.

Please let me know if you have any questions, etc.

Re: New Preview Links

Ginger,

Thanks for more of the links! I have the MacPherson book and have seen the others.

You guys do a terrific job. I'm a book-a-holic and look forward to every release from NL.

Keep up the great work.

David

Re: New Preview Links

Do you have anything specific for acrylic? I know some of our more newer to the forum members/newer to painting/etc will not be able to make the transition conceptually to acrylic from watercolour or oil. I know there are not many acrylic books out there compared to oils or watercolours but a few links to them would go a long way.

Terrific selection. Thank you Ginger for adding these to the list. I am sure a book from that list will help our newbys

Re: New Preview Links

Although I don't need any new books right now, just wanted to say I love your previews, it really helps to get an idea of what's inside before buying. I'm a big fan of North Light books, I've read and purchased many of them and they're almost always really good, well written and well-organized.

Thank you for the awesome review! WE LOVE to hear that!

I'm glad that the previews help. I have to agree. I like to see the "inside" of a book before buying. (I even flip through novels and there are no images in those! LOL!)

Re: New Preview Links

Your previews are excellent! I wonder if they could all be put as a 'sticky' at the top of this forum, so they don't get lost as more threads are added??
