This is a good point.

"Books are typically 80,000-100,000 words and they are that length because of publishing demands - binding, and so on. If you have a brilliant idea for a 25,000 word book, or if you want to write a 500,000 word saga, nobody wants to publish it. eBooks are changing that landscape."

I had an agent who said that my book length (73, 000 words) needed to be increased to 80 000 words before she could submit it to a publisher. This was after I'd carefully crafted it to take out all the unnecessary words. It now meant inserting another couple of useless chapters, so I didn't pursue it. I've sold over 13 000 copies as an e-book at 73 000 words.  ;D
