This is the novella Stephen King wrote (many years ago now) to celebrate the Amazon Kindle.  You used to be able to get it for free.

Its an engaging little story about a man who orders a Kindle to be considered forward-thinking amongst his peers in the University English department, his students, and the woman he has just broken up with. But he gets a bit more than he bargained for, a Kindle that can tap into other parallel universes.  There are book choices that authors never got to write.  News from parallel possibilities and finally – future news from this possibility.

A great short read in true King style.
