Being back in school it always feels like there’s never enough time to read for fun!! Or, put another way, when we actually have a moment of free time, sometimes curling up with a book is not always the highest priority. We’ve got extracurricular activities, jobs, internships, volunteering, homework and more to think about here. Free time is often filled up with hanging out with friends, watching TV, sleeping… Enter: the short story. Short stories are great choice when you’re busy and don’t have a lot of spare reading time. You can pick and choose which stories you want to read, rather than feel obligated to read the whole book from cover to cover, but still get your reading fix or follow your favorite authors.
