Just a couple of things today. Did you know May is short story month? I have been neglectful of my short story reading and am hoping to get it back on track this month! I might even try and read the stories mentioned in this list--Fourteen Writers You Love and their Favorite Short Stories. I can even start with Eudora Welty's Moon Lake, which my good friend Cath sent me ages ago and it is long overdue that I should read it! It is the story in one of those cool silver Penguin mini editions.
My free bob is this freebie audio file, which I plan on downloading so I can listen on one of my daily walks (or rather several of my walks since it is a YA novel). I have the book on my stack, Brittany Cavallaro's A Study in Charlotte, but I can just as easily listen as read (and maybe I will do both?).
I know I have been absent here (and have not been blog visiting lately either), but now that the calendar has flipped to May I am hoping my time frees up a bit and I will be around more! Until then, how are you? Are you reading something really good? Has it turned to spring (or maybe fall?) where you live finally? Can you believe the first quarter of the year has already passed? Time to reassess my reading I think!
