The Sony Reader Store has unveiled two new features today that are sure to impress people who shop there. The company has finally unveiled their new pre-order system, that allows readers to buy books in advance. They also released a new eBook discovery tool called Emotion Match Ups.
The Emotion Match-Ups Discover Tool prompts readers to choose from a list of thirty emotions and feelings to help them uncover a new read. From everyday feelings—alone, wild, etc.—to the more “out there” —undead, dreamy, fashionable—there’s a book to match every mood. Simply visit their link HERE and check out what eBooks are recommended for you. The Reader Store has been adding new Discovery Tools regularly to aid readers in finding new titles and this new one is the latest.
It seems as though Sony was the last of the major eBook markets to adopt the ability for readers to pre-order titles. Sony has now added the functionality to buy upcoming eBooks from favorite authors before the set on-sale date. Once a reader pre-orders a title via Reader Store, the eBook will be waiting to be downloaded immediately upon availability across all Reader libraries. There is a new category available now, that is available that will show you the books coming out in the near future.
