Welcome to the third episode of The Something Bookish Podcast. It’s a podcast for people who like to read, drink, and talk about books. Asides books, you’ll also get recipes to my experimental cocktails which are amazing.
In this episode, I share seven short story collections that I ‘ve enjoyed over the last five years. I think short stories have one certain benefit: they are short.
And “short” doesn’t only mean the number of words or characters. It also means the fast pace, the single-minded plot, and the concise form.
Also, I think it’s a good way to bring back the habit of daily reading. Don’t you think?
