Heads up, readers.
Do you love short stories? I’m not an avid fan but I do like them now and then. Penguin Randomhouse has a great program where you can receive free short stories in your inbox in installments. Stories in the past have been written by a number of different authors, some very well known like Mona Awad, Yaa Gyasi, Jay McInerny and even Margaret Atwood. Each time they offer this, the stories are taken from books of stories by that author. It’s a sample and I suppose they hope you might buy the whole book.
The short story is divided into four parts and you will receive one part each day from Tuesday to Friday for three months. I did this last year. Some of them I liked though one or two weren’t to my taste. Everyone’s different, right? If you think you might like this, go to the website and sign up. You can read a little bit each day or save the four parts for the weekend and read the whole story at once.
