    Literally bought both books at the regular price less than a month ago, while waiting for nearly that much time for the first one as it was on backorder, unbeknownst to me at the time of ordering.

    hi. i hope anybody here is online to read this comment.
    i want to buy the wordpress christmas bundle but i want to know specific description of the books if these indeed are books (or e-books) like how many pages, etc.

    because i bought a book here for 9.99 before only to be disappointed as there is nothing to learn from that e-book but only articles that is not better than the ones posted here.

    please update the details on the christmas bundle.

    I don’t see any offers for your other books such as “smashing wordpress: beyond the blog”. That’s the one I really want.

    I also can’t find the aforementioned book in your shop. I don’t get it, it’s an official smashing magazine book correct? Why aren’t all of your book offerings present in your xmas deal and the shop? It’s not like the book isn’t current the second edition of your smashing wordpress book came out this year.

      We release the Smashing Wiley Books in partnership with the Wiley publishing house and we are working through contracts to make sure that we can feature these books (and their digital versions) in our shop, too! It takes some time, but we are on it!

    Shouldn’t it be the “Web Design Package” on offer now? The “Creative Design Bundle” is now on sale with ~24hours left… I purchased that this morning… Or am I just a little confused?

    This is great specials :) Thank you once again Smashing Mag for the excellence and inspiration you bring :D

    Where did the Smashing Books Digital Books Bundle go? I bought the Web Design Bundle yesterday(20th). It is still the 21st and yet the Mobile Bundle for the 22nd runs out at the of the day. It’s like the deals are a day ahead of time. It wouldn’t be so bad if getting the digital copy for the 2nd book was an option normally, but it’s not. I have the physical copy of the first book, so the second one is the only one I care about.

    EDIT: Wait, I posted like 6 hours ahead of what my actual time is. *sigh* I guess that becomes an easy non-purchase decision.

    FYI, the Bundle page even shows a special price of $14.99 near the bottom.
