That reminds me....

A review of Addaptations by Stephanie Harrison

paley.gifIt took a recent book display at Sequoya and reading about the death of Grace Paley to remind me how much I enjoy reading short stories.  So this isn’t a book review as such but more of a reminder to anyone else who may have forgotten about this lovely genre. One of the many definitions out there of the short story is one’s ability to read it in one sitting.  What a perfect way to end the day, spend a lunch hour, or wait for an appointment.  (We all know how those appointments go.) Here’s just a small list of the many many collections available.  Next time you have a few minutes to relax….. start AND finish a story.

I can't pass up the opportunity to mention my all-time favorite Jorge Luis Borges: patron writer of librarians.
