2. Readers: We Want Your Feedback on the Smashwords Store
At Smashwords, we’re always working to improve your shopping experience. Here are a two recent enhancements introduced in the last few weeks:

Easier Series Purchasing
If you purchase a series book, at checkout we’ll now show you other books in the same series that you can add to your cart with a single click.

Catching “Special Deals”
“Special Deals” is an ongoing promotion featuring thousands of books that are exclusively on sale at Smashwords.

We’ve added a new filter so you can now view Special Deals that are about to expire.

We’ve also made books with Special Deals (as well as those participating in a site-wide promotion, like the July Summer/Winter sale) easier to spot throughout the site.

Grab those deals before they disappear!
