Booking Through Thursday: Short or Long...STORIES!!!

June 3, 2010 question: Which do you prefer? Short stories? Or full-length novels?

Answer: FULL LENGTH NOVELS!! Hands down, no thought required. I'm not a big fan of short stories-I always want more!! Even when it comes to novels, I've always enjoyed LENGTHY books. Or even better, series-so the story keeps going. The best-LENGTHY books in a SERIES!!!

I have to admit, I've only really read one collection of short stories in the past the past ever I guess. They were good, but I wanted more. I read on a blog somewhere that you need to read short stories with a different frame of mind-maybe I'll have to give them another chance!

How about you guys? YES YOU!!! Do you prefer full length novels or short stories??


  1. A mid-length novel with short chapters. I like to be able to read a book for a while (but not too long...A Fine Balance is LONG enough), but I HATE long chapters because I like to have the option to read right until the moment I need to close the book and it be the end of a chapter. That's all :)

  2. Full-length novels for me, too, and I agree with the shorter chapters. That being said, I can think of a short story or two that have really stuck with me over the years!

  3. Full lenght novels for sure!
