I began reading Deadly Housewives last night, and while I was looking forward to this book, I could not finish it. It wasn't the writing or even the stories, but I think I have finally realized that I just do not like short stories. I like being able to really get to know the characters and learn more about them and their motivations. I think that the reason why I am not successful in reading short stories is because I do not get to know the characters enough. So while I am sure that stories inside this anthology were great, I just could not finish it. I really think that it is more of a personal problem than anything with the book though.
With only six more days until school starts up again, and subbing to start tomorrow, I am planning on cramming in much more reading tonight, and if I am not called to sub tomorrow, all day tomorrow as well. Not sure what I am going to read, but I am planning on pulling something off of the TBR. Might as well work on one of those goals I set earlier. I just need to get started with my cleaning. Dinner is in the crock pot and will be ready in about an hour, so I want to get the vacuuming done before than. Then it is all reading tonight!
