I've been reading these Top 7 selections wherever I catch them in feed! I love that those are picked based on the quality and the novelty of the content 🔥🔥
Recommendation: since they are the same series, could you please create a listing on top of each article from now on, so it's easier to catch up to previous posts in case if user misses some in feed?
