Complete Stories | Flannery O'Connor
post image

1 / 25 #shortstories for 2020

• First #shortstory of 2020 complete: "You Can't Be Any Poorer Than Dead" by Flannery O'Connor from the tagged book. As usual, I detected faint whiffs of religious hypocrisy and characters rather in need of the usual redemption. I'll try to read more Flannery O'Connor this year ?? •

4 / 5 ⭐️

It was an okay story. Interesting premise.

The Canterville Ghost | Oscar Wilde

This reminded me just why I love Oscar Wilde so much ❤️ It was beautiful and thoughtful, yet at the same time there were parts when I literally found myself laughing out loud.

emz711 Yes! My favorite! 13h

William Wilson | Edgar Allan Poe

When your current read (The Outsider) references other tales. I‘m really enjoying The Outsiders (and am also watching/enjoying the HBO miniseries - I like seeing how the two differ thus far), and a character mentions this short story by E. A. Poe. Thanks to @SerialReader I can dive on in concurrently. 📚📚

The Lady, or the Tiger? | Frank R. Stockton

I generally prefer full length novels to short stories but I came across a list by the Bibliofile of "the best short stories of all time" and decided to read them. I started with this one and it was great! In fact I feel surprised that I haven't already read it, it seems the kind of thing that would be a school assignment. I'll definitely read more from this list.

sebrittainclark I had to read it as a school assignment, and I still occasionally think about it. 2d

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
He definitely built the suspense well, the overall story just wasn‘t for me. But I completed another prompt! #finishinaday #booked2020 #mountTBR #read2020

DWpalooza What is the SerialReader app? Can you describe it a bit? 5d
Readage @DWpalooza Serial Reader is an app that doles out daily installments of classic literature. Every day, you receive a bite-sized portion of what you're reading; it's great for those classic doorstopper novels like "War and Peace" and "Les Miserables" @SerialReader 4d
