Amazon Launches Tumblog: The Story (by Kindle)

the story kindle tumblrBetween Omnivoracious and Audible Range, Amazon has no shortage of literary blogs.  Now the retailer has launched a new blog, this time on Tumblr.

Launched in early March, The Story (by Kindle) was created for those who love to read. Amazon describes it as "a publication for the Kindle community and passionate readers everywhere," adding that they "hope you enjoy these stories and share them with your friends and fellow book lovers."

You can follow The Story via Tumblr, the usual RSS feed, or via email from Amazon. From what I see in the official Kindle Twitter account, Amazon will be publishing new editions of The Story on a monthly basis, making this a true literary magazine.

The Story is the second new niche literary blog launched by Amazon in the last 6 months; the retailer also launched Audible Range in December 2015.

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."
