Full books, unless it happens to be an abridged edition (in which case it'll say so in the title).

Maybe it's just the illusion that you're finishing quicker - there are less words on the page so you seem to 'turn the page' more often than usual. And I also think the screen makes it easier on the eyes and brain so you probably are reading a little faster.

But definitely they're full books - maybe you've just picked a few short ones lately!

Enjoy your reading!

E-book word counts are dropping. Most novels are now 50, 000 to 125, 000 words long. The majority of writers and readers are turning to short stories - from 5, 000 to 20, 000 words. These are known as novolettes or novellas.

E-book reading is more tiring on the eyes than paper reading for some people, but the high-handed attitude of paper book publishers has forced writers to self-publish for free on amazon, and yes, the quality has dropped.
There are e-books with good story content that are badly written and awful stories where the grammar spelling etc. Is excellent.

Only around 20% of the books on amazon are worth reading.

On Amazon, for writers of all categories, it's a game of chance.
My books are dispersed amongst 20 - 30, 000 others, if you don't know my author pseudonyms, then how do you find my stories?
So here they are: T. S. Vandelocht and T. J. Edison - and my co-author Ellen Dudley.

Have fun.
