The Guardian is the latest news outlet to get into e-singles publishing with “Guardian Shorts,” a series of “detailed guides to topical news stories, public policy, sports and cultural events” for sale on iTunes and Kindle. Several e-singles will be published each month. Not surprisingly, the first title in the series is Phone Hacking: How the Guardian Broke the Story.
Phone Hacking is available on Kindle now for £2.29/$2.99, and will be on iTunes soon. The book includes coverage of the scandal from several of the reporters who broke the story, with a final new chapter, “How we broke the Murdoch scandal,” by Guardian News & Media editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger.
