The New Improved AmeriCymru Bookstore
The AmeriCymru bookstore has undergone a major facelift and re development. There are many further enhancements planned over the coming weeks and months. Here is a guide to the recently added new features.
The Home Page
The homepage has been extensively re designed and and now displays our daily book feature and weekly author features. There are links to this page, to the AC Welsh Books of the Month Club and to our new bookstore Pinterest board. This page will be updated weekly . The Welsh Books of the Month group on AC is the best place to go if you want to nominate a title or author for listing or featuring BUT you can also leave suggestions in comments at the bottom of any of the bookstore pages OR in our new chat box on the homepage ( see below ).
There are three ways to navigate around the store. You can reach any category page from anywhere on AC visa the dropdown menu in the top navbar ( see below )
On the bookstore pages themselves there is a navbar which gives direct access to ten of the category pages. On the Amazon pages there is a 'Browse by Category' panel which gives access to ALL the categories in the store ( see below )
Why Buy from AC?
We hope you enjoy the new store and will bear us in mind when purchasing Welsh literature or books of Welsh interest. Naturally we would encourage you to shop direct from small publishers in Wales wherever possible BUT if you DO decide to buy from Amazon please remember that the pennies AC makes from running this store all go toward supporting this site and covering essential expenses ( hosting etc ) Diolch
( N.B. If anyone wishes to support our efforts by 'borrowing' the bookstore graphic ad at the top of this page and displaying it on their website or blog please feel free to do so. Other graphics available on request )

AmeriCymru will be exhibiting at the prestigious North West book fair, Wordstock again this year.
