While making time for reading is a top priority for me (it’s part of my job, after all), I’m also a young parent with limited time. And even though I’ve gotten used to breezing through blog posts, or slowly chipping away at novels, sometimes I really want to read something that falls between a blog post and a full-length book.

 

That’s why I’m really excited about the new titles that are part of our NOOK Snaps program. These original, NOOK-only books are smart, fresh and provocative perspectives from compelling contemporary voices selected by NOOK Editors. Each title is 5,000 words or longer, and is available for just $1.99. A great price for a satisfying reading ‘snack.’

 

We’ll be featuring fresh titles every two months, and the debut collection includes some impressive short content from incredibly talented authors:

 

 

 

 

 

A thought-provoking personal essay by the current managing editor of Mental Floss about her years finding her way as a feminist, while working as an editor at Playgirl magazine. It’s a coming-of-age tale that features lots of intellectual nakedness, and also some male nudity.

Jeremy: there's been a lot of confusion in the blogosphere about the NOOK Snaps program. The press release, and your announcement above, talk about four titles. But there are currently over 62,000 titles listed as NOOK Snaps. Almost none of those titles are "NOOK-only", and most aren't $1.99. Apparently, NOOK Snaps isn't anything new, either, despite what the press release says.

 

I think that a more clear statement of what NOOK Snaps is, and how the $1.99 NOOK-only titles fit into the NOOK Snaps program, would be very helpful.

Hi ,

 

NOOK has been selling terrific short content as Snaps for a while. But now NOOK has added a bimonthly program offering original, commissioned short-content works by a select group of today’s most compelling voices on the NOOK platform.

 

Happy Reading!
