Short Story Collection Recommendations

The end of summer is busy and sometimes an entire book can feel daunting. Enter: the short story. I love short stories because they feel super manageable and I can pick them up and put them down, but feel like I am accomplishing something, even if I only have 20 minutes. Here are 5 short stories collections to read as the summer winds down. Bonus – they’re relatively short so you’ll be able to blast through them! Click on the link to place a hold on them and let us know what you think when you finish one.

You Think It, I’ll Say It: Stories by Curtis Sittenfeld
