Surffing through the threads here (usually in work as you do) I found that a few people have mentioned that novellas are now not as popular or commerical as a full Noval.I understand that this is because ppl don't want to buy a short book as it's finished with too early and takes up an annoying small amount of room on the shelf (please tell me if I'm misinformed). However with the introduction of electronic books do people here think that novellas might enjoy a comeback as people could download them cheaply as a quick read while on plane or at beach etc. and not worry about shelf space etc. since they are stored in memory or deleted. So I suppose the bones of my question is does electronic books effect publishers views on word counts?
