I honestly can't think of a single novelette that I've read. Are they really that rare?
A novelette is a piece of prose between 7,500 and 17,499 words. The novelette should not be confused with the similar novella, which has a word-count between 17,500 and 39,999 words.
I've never completed a novelette before, although I am working on a piece that is likely to fall into the lower standards of novelette range.
Have you written or read any novelettes of note?
