Never again will commuters immersed in a gripping chapter, be interrupted by the end of their tube ride. Literature is now pumping in sync with the underground.’How!?’ I hear fellow bookworms chirp. Two words: Bad Dollar. Founded by writer Andy Whitlock, this is an innovative leap forward in digital reading, providing Londoners with short stories timed to match commutes. It’s nice and simple too and only costs £1. As Whitlock puts it: ‘if more people spent that small amount of money on a short story, both they and the writer would be happier.’ Couldn’t agree more. Bad Dollar: get something sound for your pound. Roma Wells.
