stories. short ones.

I have a short attention span. While i love novels, I'm not patient enough to sit still and focus on a long reading task..I do need to fix that. There's been a few novels that were compelling enough that I succeeded, but truthfully, that list is not long.

But I DO love short stories. The length, the timeline, the sharpness- it's like a mini adventure. Plus, I think there's a real challenge about writing a good short story..don't you think?

I don't like Chile's Roberto Bolano, I love him. I love that it's been difficult to put it down for a second. This has my full summer reading endorsement(A friend reminded me of him today, always give credit..)
