Bookworms and aspiring readers, listen up! Ever wish you could tune in every week to the written word instead of your DVR queue? Serialized fiction may not exactly be a new thing, but Serial Box may be a tech-obsessed bibliophile鈥檚 dream come true. Every week, Serial Box publishes short stories that rival your favorite TV shows.

Serials are released in seasons consisting of 13-16 episodes, with new episodes available every Wednesday. Each episode takes about 40 minutes to listen to or read. Just like your favorite shows, each episode builds up over the course of a season to form a greater season arc.
