Short books fit into the life spaces we have for reading. If you are busy, you need something to give an instant hit. Try poetry – you can dip in and find something pithy for brief indulgence. Or short stories, exquisite in their crafting and hugely satisfying in the worlds they create within the space of so few pages. And some short novels deliver a complete and satisfying experience while taking just a short amount of your time.
Short books often punch well above their weight – delivering riches far beyond what might be suggested by their diminutive size. Don’t be deceived by their slight appearance, size isn’t everything. But do be assured, you will be able to enjoy the experience within a manageable time frame. You won’t forget the plot because you started it three months ago and it’s easy to hold a light volume instead of a hefty tome. If you like to read something compressed, that you can complete in one sitting, these books will fit the bill.
