Three months ago, Amazon made a call to serious writers, thinkers,
scientists, business leaders, historians, politicians and
publishers to join Kindle in making a new kind of content
available to readers—Kindle Singles. Typically between 5,000 and
30,000 words, each Kindle Single is intended to allow a single
killer idea — well researched, well argued and well illustrated
— to be expressed at its natural length. Today, Amazon is
introducing the first set of Kindle Singles to the Kindle Store.
