I hate to read long stories with too many plots and overlapping functions, totally confusing. I like short stories. If you like, you please read O HENRY's collected short stories. It is simply nice.

Im glad you all like to read I thinks its becoming a lost art with hdtv,dvd,vhs,video games.But I like all books expecialy the long ones or series I get so into them that it is a disappointment to me when I have finished it its kind of like eating the last piece of b-day cake I actualy crave to read.

i like all sort of books. when i have free time i feel like reading some novels or series and when iam a bit busy i feel like reading short stories. Whatever it is, i love reading books and make it a point to read atleast 2-3 books a month.

I think I like to read series. Short stories are too, well, short. The normal stories without a sequel are also good but having a series is good, i think. Bad for my finances, but good for my mind. LOL. Anyway, series are good as long as the author does not repeat the plot over and over again, like in "A Series Of Unfortunate Events". It gets boring after a while and readers would lose interest in the series and stop buying the books. By the way, what is the difference between storybooks and novels?

I just like to read fiction novels. I don't really care for books that are in series because usually by the time I discover them there's already like 10 and I would have to start from the beginning and work my way through them. Although I have been reading the Shopaholic books ever since they came out. I sometimes like to read short stories, but mostly if they are short mystery stories. Those are fun.

I like to read the novels more as it is just like a biography of the person involved and gives more knowledge about the reality in life while short stories are good only till when I was a small child.
