    Hello Bufo,
    just curious, why do you show also the size of the book ? Is that relevant to some people ? I really don’t know that is why I ask. I never looked at the size of the book when buying or downloading it.

    BTW, you are using ‘kb’ which means kilo bits, I think you meant kB which stands for kilo bytes and is actually 8 times difference.

      Thanks for writing, Marian!

      That’s something I added not too long ago in response to requests. Some people don’t like clicking on the title in then find out that it is one of those shorts in the Kindle store. A typical novel, the way Amazon calculates it, is on the order of 900kB (thanks, by the way…I know the difference between bits and bytes, but this recently added information is more work…I was just lazily ((or efficiently, if you prefer…those two often equate 😉 )) not capitalizing. I didn’t think anybody who knew the difference would be confused. It’s like when people were saying Y2K for the year 2000…when Y2K is arguably 2048. 😉 On the other hand, people unfamiliar with the symbols will probably assume that kB is an error.).

      I do like short stories, but a lot of people don’t like getting something that is, say, under 1,000 words.
