shots-logo_180So the final part of my grand master plan to get reading again is to sign up for Rob’s 100 Shots of Short challenge. Really straightforward – just read 100 short stories as and when possible.

I have always enjoyed short stories; I know that they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I think they can be very rewarding, and I go back to some of my genre favourites in particular quite often. One thing I’ve never really got to grips with is the best way to read a collection – read one story and put the book down, or plunge in as if it was a novel. I’ve done both over the years and really can’t decide…..

But I’m sure, however I decide to do it, that 2 stories a week over a year is a manageable target, don’t you think?
