May is not officially any sort of short fiction recognition month, but taking a quick break to enjoy a short story or several makes perfect sense for those of us facing finals, papers, and other end-of-year projects. Several works of short fiction are on display on the library’s new books shelf, near the stairs. You can check any of these books out (and are encouraged to do so).
Here are 5 great reasons to read short stories:
- Escape! Learn about another country, culture, or language through its literature.
- You want to improve your writing.
- It’s May, and your time is precious.
- You need a study break.
- You crave entertainment that won’t insult your intelligence.
