Short Story February
Last year I tried focusing on short stories during the month of February, and I read a lot of stories. I picked a dozen collections and anthologies and cycled from one to the other throughout the month. I didn’t finish all those books, but I had a good time reading the stories I did get to.
It worked so well, I’m doing it again this year.
Starting February 1, I’ll be reading (almost) exclusively short stories. Of course, something else may come along that demands my reading attention, but I’m going to try to spend as much of the month as possible reading short stories.
I have lots of collections and anthologies here, with stories ranging from literary through science fiction, fantasy, pulp and, of course, mystery. My Monday Current Reading posts will include lists of stories I read and the book they were in.
How about you?
