Series Sunday: James Patterson BookShots

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Revision. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is a new reading revolution introduced by bestselling author James Patterson. BookShots are original mystery, romance and nonfiction tiny books. Unlike the usual 400-page books in Patterson's series, BookShots will be under 150 pages and under $5.

It is a brilliant way to get people to read more. Shorter books; shorter time needed to read them. Cheaper books; more sales. This style of reading is ideal for busy folks. With BookShots, there is no excuse for people who claim to not have time to read. Seriously, everyone can make time for one sitting. According to The New York Times article, James Patterson wants to "sell books to people who have abandoned reading for television, video games, movies and social media."

BookShots are perfect for my Keeping Up with Patterson reading challenge. As if Patterson wasn't already cranking out books like car parts in a Detroit Chrysler plant, he plans to release 2-4 BookShots a month. A possible 24+ new releases in 2016!

Check back on my Series Sunday meme in early June where I will review the first BookShot to be released: Cross Kill (priced $4.99 for paperback, $3.99 for NOOK or Kindle). Visit www.bookshots.com for more deets.
