NYT steps into digital minibook business, offering ‘e-singles’

LOS ANGELES — The New York Times is getting into the business of selling bite-sized digital books based on its reporters’ work, giving it entree into a growing market for inexpensive ‘‘e-singles’’ that can be read in a couple of hours.

The Times’ first mini book will go on sale Monday. It’s an 18,000-word piece about skiers caught in an avalanche by Times reporter John Branch. The story, called ‘‘Snow Fall,’’ expands on an upcoming piece in Monday’s newspaper.
