Peggy Northrop, Laura Fraser, and Rachel Greenfield have gotten together and created something really special. They gather short e-stories written for women, by women and they even have come up with a unique delivery/subscription system.
You can buy the books individually or for $7.95 a month, you can have access to their entire library and with up to 15 coming out every month, that is a lot of fiction, memoirs, and journalistic pieces.
Many readers love short stories and I fall into anther category where I can take them or leave them, but I am usually disappointed after being so used to the depth in novel and longer non-fiction. However, I have read two so far and the first actually made me cry and I bet the others in my line up will not let me down either.
So, have you read any of these? Shebooks Works
What do you think about Subscription Book services in General? Like Oyster if you have an iThing or now Kindle Unlimited if you have a Kindle. I tried Oyster out , but since I only have an iPod, I wasn’t really thrilled to read on it 24/7 and letting my kindles collect dust. I just started the first free month of Kindle Unlimited and so far have been able to lessen the vast numbers on my wish lists, but haven’t really looked for more current or better known books to borrow yet.
My next few reviews will be of the of the offerings from Shebooks and I really don’t think I have ever approached short stories and pieces with such excitement.
