From what I know, as a non-Brit Dutch person living in the Netherlands, it is/was something started in the 2000's somewhere to help non-readers get into reading. Every year they asked several authors to write a novella / short story, which would be published and available to buy in certain English book shops for £1 during a limited period

I've honestly never heard of them before! It sounds like a great idea!

If there's any you're finding it hard to get let me know and I'll see if I can find it here :)
