Some Short Reads

As a companion to my BIG Books list (which really took off, wow), here is a short list of quick reads - from short stories to short novels, everything here is 250 pages or fewer, down to just 20 or so. If you don't have time for a big book, or you want an easy way to add a couple of books to your reading challenge, I hope you find something you like here!
