Andrew (nitesead) I'm doing a few of the book challenges as well, but since I already messed up my New Year's Resolution to read one short story per day, I'm changing it to a simple, achievable goal of 100 published short stories read in 2009 total. I've only done one so far and it's 1/27/2009, so I'm getting on it right now. I'll just edit this post as I go!

1. Flannery O'Connor - "A Good Man is Hard to Find" 1-26-2009
2. John Updike (R.I.P.) - "Deaths of Distant Friends" 1-28-2009
