On amazon kindle would you read a book that was set out as chapters.

So book one would be chapter one approx 5000 words. The the same very so on. Only looking at selling them for 20p a chapter? Just want to keep it flowing instead of throwing the whole book in there.

Probably not, to be honest.

I'd be concerned that I'd never find out the end of the story. Plus, if I'm reading something I want to read it all on my own schedule, not someone else's.

Yea that's true ::

No, I wouldn't. I prefer to read books continuously, and even if I waited until they had all been issued, it would be a nuisance to have 20 or so 'chapters' to open and close on my Kindle.

You could offer chapter one separately as a freebie to attract potential readers, maybe?

No. Too much faff with multiple downloads. I might consider it for a very favourite author, Terry Pratchett could possibly have pulled it off.

No, faffing about, repeat paying and downloading. It's enough of a faff to download library ebooks to my Kobo as it it, and theyre free.

No way. Far too faffy.
