  3. I've not been one to read loads of short stories though I am not against it. Mostly I've read women's literature in this type of writing, no other opportunities have really arisen.

  4. I absolutely love short stories, anthologies, etc!!!! Especially of the ghostly or paranormal genre. They're perfect reads for a midday book *quickie* (almost said *nooner* hahahaha) ... or right before bed when you don't DARE get caught up in a novel and read until it's like 5 a.m. and you've gotta get up at 7 (I think we've ALL been there, done that).

    Now, not everyone knows this but short storys are so much more interesting with a fresh pint of Ben & Jerry's alongside, especially their new PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE lmtd edition flavor which I am proud to say I scarfed down last night while curled up with The Clique ;D

    btw - Barnes & Nobles puts out one of the best short story series of books ever. Their *100 little* series.

  5. I love reading short stories. They're a great way to test drive some new authors so to speak. I usually read UF, fantasy and horror short stories.

  6. I like noir short stories.
    Great authors accomplish great enviroment with few pages!

  7. I like mystery and horror short stories. I like to read an anthology every once in awhile to take a break from reading novels.

  8. I do enjoy short stories. Usually I go for urban fantasy or paranormal but sometimes I read mysteries too.

  9. I prefer short stories in the mystery, urban fantasy, and paranoraml romance genre.

  10. I vote for urban fantasy short stories too... Tough sometimes I wish the stories were longer to keep reading!!

  11. I don't normally read short stories but when I do I like ghost stories or mysteries.

  13. hm, nope, i haven't read many short stories. but when i do, it's usually classical, victorian stories and sherlock holmes!

  14. I didn't had the chance to read short stories, but i would like to read all kind of genders mostly mystery, paranormal.

  15. I'm a big paranormal and mystery gal, but will really read anything - i like short stories because I can usually start and finish them before my kids wake up from nap :)

  16. I've read a few paranormal and mystery anthologies but that's about it. I like to read them when I don't have a lot of time. Although sometimes they're so good, I wish they were longer :P

  17. I like to read non-fiction short stories about real life inspirational life struggles and how they overcame them.
