Short Stories !

A friend of mine showed me this link from her once-upon-a-time blog and I loved this.

Check out http://robaroundbooks.com/robs-reading-challenges/100-shots-of-short-reading-challenge/

The best part is that this one does not have any time limits but comes with an assortment of short stories up for you to read and well, you may stumble upon some great ones yourself.

If you like short stories or have not tried them before, go ahead and give these a try. If you have anything to recommend, then please do. Β I am starting mine tonight πŸ™‚

    I used to read a lot of short stories earlier, but don’t do that any more. I love the experience of reading them, though. Sometimes, there’s so much substance packed into a few words – so much power. It’s almost magical. πŸ™‚

    I heard of this challenge too. Good luck with it!

      So true. especially the way they culminate sometimes leaving that amazing taste in your mind. I have a few short stories omnibus but haven’t read many short stories lately (other than fiction by fellow bloggers) πŸ™‚
      I am looking forward to this πŸ™‚

    I love short stories! They are definitely better than the long ones, which become a trouble completing if they happen to be boring.
    Looking forward to your list πŸ™‚
    Can the readers recommend you?

    I prefer novels to short stories and even short stories I tend to stick to Guy deMaupassant and O.Henry, but seems like it’s time to expand my horizon πŸ™‚

    • kismitoffeebar · May 4, 2012

      Peevee,

      Ah, I am open to both as long as I enjoy them. I love O. Henry and Guy deMaupassant. I am discovering some ol’ one by Tagore and all πŸ™‚ Loving it so far πŸ™‚
