Nook Snaps is Barnes & Noble’s Answer to Kindle Singles

Barnes & Noble’s Nook Media has debuted a new format for short content on the Nook called Nook Snaps.

Like the Kindle Single from Amazon, Nook Snaps are short pieces of fiction and non-fiction that are at least 5,000 words — longer than magazine articles but shorter than eBooks. These titles are priced less than an eBook. Nook will release a few of these selections a month for $1.99 each. This month the titles include: How to be a Playgirl by Jessanne Collins; High-Status Characters by Brian Raftery and Willing to be Lucky by Mickey Rapkin, among others.

“We believe our collection of bite-sized Nook Snaps, refreshed bimonthly and offered at a great price, provides a wonderful new way for our readers to connect with some of today’s most compelling voices,” stated Theresa Horner, VP of digital content at Nook Media.
