There's a good portion of you that are already reading entire books on your iPhone, but there's also a majority of you who are still on the fence about reading from an electronic device. Well, have I got the ideal "baby steps" approach for you!
I came across a new site on DownloadSquad called Wordds that features articles (which people can vote on) and breaks them up into word counts. Each category of articles (1,000, 2,500, 5,000, or 10,000 words) tells you how long it will take to read a particular story — whether it be three to five minutes or five to seven minutes — so you know how long you'll be glued to your screen.
The only big pitfall I see right now is the fact that you can't find stories by topic, which I'm assuming will come later.
