The Onion Gets Into eSingles With Joe Biden Autobiography

bidencover-articleInline[1]When Amazon announced the Kindle Single Store in early 2011 they intended to offer a curated, high-quality source of serious and thoughtful short works that didn't quite fit as either a magazine article or a book. I don't think they were planning on The Onion releasing their satirical "autobiography" of Joe Biden, but that's what happened this week.The Onion has assembled several previously published articles and bundled them into The Onion's first standalone ebook. While the world's best read paper has been publishing anthologies of their best work,  The President of Vice is the first to focus on a single ongoing story.Here is  how it's described in the Kindle Store:

The Onion is proud to present The President of Vice: The Autobiography of Joe Biden. In this scandalous memoir, America's favorite politician discusses his early years, before he became ultimate wingman to the leader of the free world. For the first time ever “Diamond” Joe discusses the formative experiences of his life, including his childhood selling hooch in Scranton, his years cruising college campuses picking up co-eds in a Del Rio, the grade-A tang he plowed in the summer of '87, and his "sweet ass gig" as Senator of Delaware.

It's priced at $2.99.

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."
