I am getting a Kindle Paperwhite for my upcoming birthday (!!!), so it’s time to step up my e-book game. I’ve been noodling the idea of joining Scribd or Amazon Prime, two of the biggest services for borrowing e-books. I’ve been poking through their respective offerings somewhat obsessively to figure out which plan is right for me, so I found this listicle on Parade‘s web site about the most widely read ebooks available on Scribes from each state pretty interesting. They are reading about ice cream up in Alaska, while The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee by Sarah Silverman is giving us New Yorkers an Empire State Of Mind about pee. Just Kids by Patti Smith is their most widely read book in California and I give that two enthusiastic thumbs up. Anyway, I’m leaning towards Prime, but anyone wants to weigh in on the matter, I’m all ears! [Parade]

Harlequin Books Serialized On Your Cell

Harlequin, the world’s largest publisher of romance fiction, is keeping up with the times by offering all of its current titles as ebooks, holding readings in Second Life, and blogging about paranormal romance. According to Brent Lewis, Harlequin’s director of Internet and digital, five of the top 10 bestselling books in Japan were written on a mobile phone (mostly written for consumption on mobile devices and later published due to their popularity). For its own ebooks, Harlequin breaks stories down to 500 words chunks that are delivered daily via text message. We’re kind of wondering what happens when those 500 words end in the middle of an especially steamy scene — do they get you all worked up and then leave you hanging for 24 hours until the next 500 words arrive?
