News! -What’s New?

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

We have winners of the Twitter Background Design Contest!   Check out the PBS Blog for the winners, and links to the winning designs.

Speaking of the Blog…did you see the recent author interview with Mindy Friddle?  We plan more author interviews for the future, so keep checking back on the blog.  There’s a lot going on there!  You can reach the PBS Blog from the link under Community at the top of any page on the site.

Smarter, faster, more productive…it’s the Bionic Search! The Search has been improved, so that you can more easily find the books you are looking for.  Not only will the search results display to show more relevant results at the top, but also if you make a typo while entering your search terms you will be offered an option to see the results for the spelling the system thinks you might have intended.  Try searching the site for “Charlene Harris”  or  “Harry Poter”  to see what we mean.

PBS Store News: Car Magnets are finally here!  Members have been asking for these forever.  It took us a long time to find a vendor who could provide quality at a decent price.  The rectangular magnets are 8 inches x 5 inches and won’t mar your car like a bumper sticker would.  We also have a new stock of soft bookcovers in the Kiosk, in four sizes and many patterns.  These items sell fast, so get your order in!   These keep your reading material private, as well as protect your books and make them easy to hold.

Whatcha hidin’?  …Wouldn’t you like to know!  The soft bookcovers in the Kiosk can keep your reading material private, as well as protect your books and make them easy to hold.  Now in three sizes: Mass Market, Premium Mass Market (= most trade paperbacks) and Hardcover, and a number of different patterns.  Seriously, if you haven’t gotten one of these yet, you are missing out!

Cross-Country Champs… Check out the new page of Most Traveled Books under Search at the top of any page on the site…. These are individual copies of books that have been swapped the most times and are still traveling and available to request.  You can see the path each book has taken, and you can also see the most-swapped copies of all time from a link on the still-traveling copies page.  Think of it, each of these books could have had just one reader and then languished on a dusty shelf forever.  Instead, each of them has gladdened the hearts of multiple readers – and the currently-traveling copies are still going strong!

The Cloth Book Covers were invented originally for romance readers, to give them privacy while they read! So it is fitting that we have new patterns in the store this month:

Sunflower Wildflower

Digital Scales are back! These are great to use with Printable Postage.  New model, same price.
