The result is that I read a lot more. I bring my kindle along and can alternate between science papers and novels as I wish.
Last week I started (and promptly finished) David Gaughran's short story collections, If You Go Into the Woods.
|So pretty and creepy and awesome!|
More seriously, though, both of the short stories within are great to read. This is well worth the 0.99$ you have to pay through Amazon. It's short and sweet, perfect for a coffee break. I'm not a big short story reader, but these left me with no regrets at all.
For the record, David keeps a wonderful blog chronicling his progress through self-publishing, along with what he did to get there and what you need to know. It's an incredible wealth of information on the subject, so if you find yourself contemplating self-publishing, you should definitely keep an eye on it.
