I love short stories. Short stories are a great way to get you into the mood of reading.
- They are often short, so you are more likely to finish a short story in a matter of minutes.
- They also leave you with a pleasure of finishing a story.
- They are also an incentive to reach for the next read. After you finish reading a good short story, you are more likely to read another one or pick up a good book.
- They are also something to read in between novels. After finishing a long book, short stories are there to give you an action packed, story driven, and not to demanding short story.
- Short stories are also a new way to try new genres and authors!
A short story is the ultimate close-up magic trick. A couple of thousand words to take you around the universe or break your heart.Neil Gaiman
