Granta Unveils Kindle Edition

Granta editor John Freeman unveiled a Kindle edition of the literary journal in a blog post today.

Here’s an excerpt: “In thirty-one years of publishing, Granta has never come out in a different format. Ever since Bill Buford and Jonathan Levi took over Cambridge’s student literary journal and gave it new life as a paperback magazine it has been just that: a paperback quarterly full of new writing … But there is, now, a different way to get Granta. If you want to read the magazine on a Kindle, your copy can arrive in under a minute.”

The editor also confessed his own reluctance about the new format: “a world where everyone must have a $140 device to read is certainly not quite as democratic as the one we live in now.” What do you think? Full disclosure: This GalleyCat editor has written for Granta‘s website in the past.
