Mixbook

17 Jun

I haven’t yet plunged into the world of kindles and ipads, but I was wondering whether publishers have made it possible to purchase individual e-text versions of short stories and essays and compile them in what one might call mixbook format. It’d be like a mixtape, only instead of arranging a set of songs, one would be creating a mix of favorite short texts. I’d make for every teenage cousin, niece, and nephew a whimsically heterogeneous short story anthology including–hm, let’s see–okay, ‘Description of a Struggle’, ‘The Drowned Giant’, ‘Signs and Symbols’, ‘A Horse and Two Goats’, ‘The Circular Ruins’, ‘A Sign in Space’, ‘The Chipmunk and the Squirrel’, ‘Everything is Green’, ‘The Nose’, ‘Benito Cereno’, and ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’.

If there isn’t yet a way to do this, I expect a massive check ASAP for my amazing idea.
