Would You Use This New Service On Your iPad?

UK newspaper the Independent published an article today discussing a new service launching in December called Short List Press. The service plans to build on that great publishing tradition, the Short Story, by offering 99p short stories by various authors around the Globe, in the English language.

These will range from 2,500 to 15,000 words in length and will be designed for reading on portable devices like the iPad and iPhone, as well as the Kindle and other eBook readers.

Short List Press are also asking for original, previously unpublished, submissions from authors that are "great literary/upmarket fiction which is plot-driven, has an original voice and is fresh and vibrant".

We think it is an interesting move and one that intrigues us as we watch closely the impact devices like the iPad have on the Publishing industry. We would encourage you to check out the article, especially if you enjoy reading more than the odd webpage on your device.

Are you reading full length books on your iPad? Would you be more inclined to buy short stories and read these on your iPad? What do you think of Short List Press's plans? Let us know in the comments below.
