Who said that all books have to be at least 300 pages?
In a time when people are bombarded with tiny bits of information through Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook, it should be more important than ever to keep important ideas concise.
Yet somehow, whether fiction or nonfiction, book writers, editors, and publishers seem hell bent on making books too long.
And if you do spend the time reading, say, business books, it just becomes one example after another, and after another, proving the same point over and over again.
If the idea is that important, cut it down, and make the book 100 or 150 pages. Make it something you could get through in a few days.
There’s a lot going on right now, and so much competition for attention. And with people spending so much more time on short videos, articles, and headlines, start making the books smaller and easier to digest.
People love buying books. If they were shorter, they may enjoy reading them, too.
