15 New Ecommerce Books for March 2012

The wide adoption of the tablet has created an explosion in ebook publishing. Here is a list of new ecommerce titles, including books on marketing, social media, and email lists. Nearly all of the books are available in digital format, while only one is available in hardcover. One-third of the titles can be read for free by Amazon Prime members.

This list was compiled using Amazon.com on March 12, 2012. From Amazon’s “Books” category, I selected “Browse Subjects” and chose the “Business & Investing” sub-category. From there, I selected “Industries & Professions,” and chose “E-commerce.” Then I handpicked titles from that group, based on customer ratings and relation to ecommerce.
