Let’s face it, we have huge TBR piles and we are never able to resist buying more books!
“What! It is a sale, how can I miss it?”
“I can always make room for more books.”
“There is always space for books!”
“I can donate my older books!”
These are just some of the excuses we often make and justify our not putting a stop to buying books!
And let’s face the reality and admit that reading and buying books are completely different hobbies!
So one possible solution to reduce our constant buying of books is to READ ONLINE!
The best thing to read online are short stories.
I personally do not prefer reading novels online (unless I absolutely must!) as I spend way too much time on the computer (or rather this godforsaken addictive smartphone) anyway! Reading my old fashioned paperback is one way I can detach from technology!
Short stories however are fun and short to read and give less strain to the eyes!
So we at The Book Cafe have decided to introduce you to a short story available online. It will be posted on the first of every month so that you get a whole month to read the short story!
The logic behind Short Story of the Month is three fold:
- To introduce you to newer writers.
- To make sure people do not think any less about short stories
- To help you read, even without shelling out tons of money and then stacking on your long TBR piles!
What say? Is it a deal?
Stay tuned tomorrow for the short story reveal!
