This was one of the birthday gifts from my boyfriend, and I had a hibernating day today, feeling ill and in a hiding mood, so I read it, cover to cover.

And it's wonderful. Simply wonderful. Highly recommended. Some will recommend it for people who don't read much or who have limited time to read, but really, anyone can appreicate this.

This is short stories, by well-known and obscure writers, in 21 words or less, but still full and complete short stories in the sense that they hint at a much larger story behind the one or two sentences on the page. Many are thought-provoking, some funny, some strange, but all enjoyable, some even have an emotional effect.
They're divided into categories; Life and Death, Love and Hate and This and That.

Most recommended, an enjoyable and varied speed-read.

BF has great taste. ;-)

Mark Ramstead I missed your birthday, again???
Have the books i got you arrived? If not I will find out why?
Hope you have moved and got caught up...

J.V. Seem Hiya!
My birthday's too close to Christmas for anyone to remember, really. It's January 20th.
I didn't get any packages, no. It'll have my old address, and post with the wrong address will only be forwarded for a certain amount of time, so we shall see.
I haven't moved yet, no, still living with dad, but I have now found an apartment, yay! It's smack bang in the middle of the city, walking distance to BF, to work, and to our theatre. It's a bit unclear when I'll get to move in though, but we're signing the contract on Monday, so things will be more settled then!
