12 New Ecommerce Books for Summer 2019

For your summer reading list, here’s a batch of new ecommerce books. There are titles on multichannel marketing, blockchain technology, startup strategy, funding your business, and producing successful videos.

I compiled this list using Amazon. From Amazon’s “Books” category, I selected “Business & Money.” From there I chose the “Processes & Infrastructure” sub-category and selected “E-commerce.” Then I handpicked titles from that group, based on customer ratings and relation to ecommerce. In addition, I selected a few titles from the “Small Business & Entrepreneurship” sub-category.
