BEDA 6 and Reading

I finished two books today!!! YAY!!! Do you ever not want to read? Or, even worse, want to read and can find nothing to satisfy you? I hate that! Right now I have so many great YA books checked out and I also have several that I have purchased, and I am unhappy with all of them. I guess I should take them back, but I really want to read the books I have. I don't know what the deal is...probably just that I am in a funk. Anyway, today I finished Promises in Death and Love is Hell. I don't know about you guys, but I love short story collections. I especially love them if they are collections with various authors. This is the number one way that I find new authors to obsess over. It is really nice to buy a book for $8-$11 that has fifteen or so different stories all by different authors. If you are lucky and like all of the authors, that's great...but if you hate some of them then you haven't spent a ton of money on fifteen different books. Anyway...short post I know, but it's late! So let us you all prefer short story collections, novels, both, or something else completely?

i don't really like short story collections that much. i like something that has time to grow. short stories are kind of too short. thanks lis or chelle!
