Which do you prefer? Short stories? Or full-length novels?

This is an “it depends” post.

It depends on the story, the writer’s skill, and most importantly, my mood. Sometimes I like a novel and sometimes a short story or a collection of short stories.

Most of the time I read novels but that doesn’t mean that I prefer them. I get far more recommendations for novels and they are usually easer to get than short story collections, not to mention a single short story. Especially if it has been only published in a US print magazine. So, novels, on the whole, are easier to get.

I also find novels far easier to review.

I like them both but I read more novels.
