Short story aesthetics test-o-rama

Hi everyone

I'm a writer, but I'm not a reader (in that I don't have a mobile reading thingummy and I'm a complete n00b when it comes to this technology), so I was wondering whether I might ask a favour of you.

I've written some short stories and published them on Smashwords, and as I can't view them in the way that they're intended to be viewed I wondered whether some of you might have a look at them and let me know whether they're easy to read or not - I don't want people to be put off by too-small print or bad font (or whatever other pitfalls there might be that I have no idea about).

There's one called Last Chance, one called Summer In Ridley and one called A Perk Of The Job - they're all free to download, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...!

Simon

They seem to be available in many formats: is there any format in particular you'd like tested? Aesthetically, I imagine they're fairly different from one another.

Er...whichever format that you personally would use most frequently, I suppose. Actually I can see the html and PDF versions on a computer (although I'm guessing they could look quite different on a reader), but I don't know what the Kindle, Epub or LRF look like at all.

So, in summary, comments on any of the formats would be really helpful.
