Good Price For "Short Read" Category?

While .99 cents might be seen as way too cheap for a decent length novel or novella according to THIS thread, I was wondering what the thoughts were on that price point for the "Short Read" categories?

I had an idea for a short read, but was wondering if a $2.99 price might be a bit much for something 25-ish pages in length.

If you're looking at fiction, then 99 to 150 cents for 44 pages is adequate. If it is non-fiction, then its value is based on the value of the subject matter.

2.99 is OK for any novella, even a 20 pages one.

Not for a short story of 5 pages, somewhere in the middle is the limit.

44 pages is fine at 2.99

I'd say $0.99 for a short story of 25 pages is pretty good. I put out small novellas of around 60 pages at $2.99. However, they don't sell well, so price may be an issue for me.

You could always put out an anthology of multiple short stories and price that at higher, too.
