Such a beautiful project, @Brandon Durham. Really have enjoyed it so far. Can't wait for more chapters to be released and to see how you handle long form reading on the web.
Thanks so much, @Davy Rudolph! It's been a lot of fun so far, and a huge challenge. Not all chapters are quite as long as this first, but a few are much longer. Getting people to stick around for more than a few seconds is an almost impossible task. I've got some JS on the page that tracks how far down the page visitors are scrolling and so far I'm showing that approximately 11% of the visitors are actually scrolling to the bottom *and* staying long enough to read the chapter.
I'm experimenting on my end with some layout options for the user to see if I can help make it a more surmountable task. Also considering offering each chapter as a download (ebook and PDF). We'll see.
