How to Read a Short Story

  1. Put aside some time. A short story is not a novel, it should be read in one sitting.
  2. Turn off the TV and the radio. Rid yourself of any distractions.
  3. The writing in a short story is usually more concentrated: expect to spend a little more time on the page than you would for a novel.
  4. Remember that a short story is like a glass of beer. The first one of the day is always the best.
