  1. Wow! You are the short story queen!

  2. That list is incredible. I didn't know you had reviewed so many. I love short stories.

  3. Sandy - Funny, but this time last year I would have told you that I hated short stories!

    Heather Zundel - Thanks for visiting! I rediscovered short stories last spring (hadn't read any since high school ... ages ago). Then I discovered Short Story Monday hosted by The Book Mine Set, and just started participating. Hopefully that will continue in 2010.

  4. I am getting more into short stories now-are their any good events on short stories one can join?

  5. Mel U - Short Story Monday (hosted by John Mutford at The Book Mine Set) is the event I usually participate in. I try to read a story weekly, post a review on Monday, then add the link to my post in my comment to John. I believe there are also some short story challenges.
