Amazon Debuts ‘Kindle Singles'

10/13/2010 10:32:44 AM Eastern

Seattle - Amazon today said it will begin marketing Kindle
Singles, or shorter-than-average books, for the Kindle.

In a sparse explanation of Singles, Amazon said they will be
stories, articles and other written content that falls short of the usual
length of a book, but would be much larger than a typical magazine feature
story. These would stretch between 10,000 and 30,000 words, compared with the
50,000 of a traditional book.

The Kindle Singles will have their own section of Amazon's e-Book
Store and will be priced much lower than regular e-books.

Amazon did not say when the first Single would be released, the
exact pricing, or if it was operating through traditional book publishers or
with author's directly.

The Singles will work with all Kindle-, Apple- and Android-based
readers.
