Goodreads Members Suggest: Favorite Very Quick Reads

"Did you set an extremely ambitious Reading Challenge goal back in January? And has this, uh, unprecedented year gotten completely in the way of meeting your goal?
Never fear; we're here for you! We asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook to suggest their favorite short (and very short) books that you can read during the final weeks of this year's Challenge. Cheating? Nah. Think of it as a way to get to even more great, reader-approved books.
With 40 selections spanning a variety of genres, we think this list will help you get over that final hump. And who knows, maybe you'll find your next favorite read among them!"
