Why Read Short Stories?

I, for one, love short stories. I buy collections of them bound into thick books, each book containing stories by multiple authors. Sometimes I will even buy a book of short stories put out by a single author. Why might I choose these over a novel?



  1. The shortest stories can be read during a lunch break.
  2. Ones that are a bit longer can be read during my slow morning routine, before bed, or while sitting at the park.
  3. Reading short stories is a wonderful way to find new favorite authors!
  4. They are fun to read.
  5. They can also introduce you knew genres that you have hesitated to delve into because of length. I mean, what if you hate it? Right?
