There are now novels available as iPHONE APPS!

Some sell for as little as 99 cents. JA Konrath is doing this.

Many people are just reading books on their iPhones. Why carry a Kindle (or even a non-evil reader) around when you can read off your phone and also check internet, take pictures, make phone calls, etc?

AND it's got better screen resolution, color and is actually wider than the Kindle screen, you just have to scroll more often.

I recently downloaded an $8 epub version of Lee Child's latest bestseller to my iPhone. I'm using the free iStanza reader app to read it (they let you customize the whole reading experience). It's sharp, clear, and the book is so good the rapid finger swiping to page through is quickly forgotten. I always have this smartphone with me so I always have this book. The only problem is, unlike a physical book, it's easy to forget I actually have it. Too much other stuff coming at me on the device.

As an author, I'm concerned about the future of long-form reading, ie, books.

I repeat, bookstores will become museums along with libraries. It's inevitable. I'm sorting through books now - in Florida, they mildew quickly. Some of my treasured books are ruined anyway.
