Great Short Short Stories : Quick Reads by Great Writers
by Paul Negri

To buy books would be a good thing, observed Arthur Schopenhauer, if we also could buy the time to read them. All devoted readers long for more time to spend with their books, and the next best thing to buying time is making the most of the available moments.

An outstanding collection of 30 brilliant short stories, each just six or fewer pages in length, it provides the chance to absorb an entire story (or two or three) in just one sitting.
