Cellphone Novels Top Sellers in Japan

Cellphone novels (keitai shosetsu), aimed primarily at young women, hit the top sellers list in Japan, see article in The New York Times.<--

This article is almost a year old, but it was mentioned on our National Radio today, along with eBook usage in Japan. Thought it deserved a second look.

A more recent article by Dana Goodyear in The NewYorker <--

"The cell-phone novel, or keitai shosetsu, is the first literary genre to emerge from the cellular age" ~ Dana Goodyear
