Amazon to launch 'Kindle Singles'

October 12, 2010 3:34:14 PM PDT
Amazon is launching something new for Kindle users who want to read something longer than a magazine article but shorter than a novel.

"Kindle Singles" will launch on the Kindle store website.

Amazon says it's asking writers, politicians, scientists, business leaders and others to submit shorter writings that will be sold on the kindle store website.

The shorter writings will be offered at a lower price than full-length books.

Amazon has not said when the Kindle singles will launch.
