If you're looking for some new reading material on your Kindle or inside Amazon's reading app, you're in luck. The online retailer announced Singles Classics: a collection of essays and stories from "well-known authors" that were published in "top magazines and periodicals." In fact, some of the selections will be available digitally for the first time. The articles are priced at $0.99 and up, but Kindle Unlimited subscribers are privy to the content at no extra charge.

Singles Classics follows Amazon's Kindle Singles that launched some time ago and features shorter selections of both fiction and non-fiction. For the debut of Singles Classics, expect over 140 essays and stories from the likes of Susan Orlean, Norman Mailer, Gloria Steinem, Lawrence Wright, Margo Jefferson and Gay Talese alongside best-selling authors like John le Carré and Kurt Vonnegut. In terms of publications the articles are pulled from, that list includes TIME, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Esquire, The Atlantic and Playboy. Singles Classics are available to read and download on Kindle and Fire tablets as well as the Kindle app for Android, iOS, PC and Mac.
