Free Kindle ebook: 8MB-Republished-Again

I have a hilarious little joke I want to share with you. One of the free ebooks that popped up in the Kindle Store yesterday is a little odd. No, it's not a crossover  between unrelated genres (but you probably guessed that from the title).

The ebook in question appears to be a mistake. It's about 8MB in size, and the entire contents, so far as I can tell, are naughts. Yes, this ebook contains 8MB worth of zeros.

I'm sure it was activated by accident, but who cares? I consider myself lucky to be able to hear this excellent prose spoken to me by my Kindle. The section right around location 1252 brings tears to my eyes. I seriously think this could be the winner of next year's Man Booker prize.

Even if it isn't this is still a captivating book. I wonder if Amazon have sold the movie rights yet?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
