• I saw these in my local supermarket the other day. My first sighting of author James Patterson’s new endeavor: Bookshots. Are you familiar with it?
Patterson has worked long and hard to encourage reading, especially in view of increasingly short attention spans. He’s producing these books, less than 150 pages long, in hopes that readers will be enticed to read something that doesn’t require a huge investment of time. They are novellas.
Here’s an article that explains the whole project – in the New York Times. Click here.
