If you don’t want to read a whole book, you may enjoy a short story.  Because these stories are so short, I’m giving only a genre and a 1-sentence synopsis.

1. The Landlady by Roald Dahl  (Genre: horror)

A young man checks into a seemingly normal bed-and-breakfast.

2. Tobermory by H. H. Munro (Genre: comedy)

A cat can talk, becoming the viral hero of the 1800s.

3. The Open Window by H. H. Munro (Genre: suspense)

A girl tells a story to a guest.

4. The Monkey’s Paw by W. W. Jacobs (Genre: horror)

A boy receives a mummified monkey’s paw that can grant three wishes.

5. The Birthmark by Nathaniel Hawthorne (Genre: science fiction/tragedy)

A man attempts to cure his wife’s birthmark.

Happy (short) reading!
