Yes, I give up. I’m am very, very behind in my short story reading, and even further behind in blogging the stories that I *have* read. I won’t bore you with excuses, but I will blame some pretty amazing upcoming books for taking up all of my reading time (*cough* Dave Eggers *cough* Donna Tartt *cough*).
So I’m officially declaring Short Story Bankruptcy. I will not try to catch up. Instead, I will begin anew on Monday, August 19th. Back to one story per day. Back to blogging the stories, hopefully weekly.
In the meantime, enjoy your vacation. I won’t be announcing an August short story read-along, so that you all can catch up on prior stories of month (or declare bankruptcy yourself, as you like).
I’ve got a fantastic story read-along planned for September, though, so rest up.
I’ll check in with you soon.
