Have you been so busy procrastinating you’ve forgotten to do your Christmas shopping? Not sure what book to get for your favorite (grown up) reader?
Order a subsrciption to ONE STORY. Now!
My sister-in-law who is lovely and smart and generous gave me a subscription a few months ago. Every three weeks a short story arrives in the mail. The packaging is simple and comforting. It easily fits in my purse – perfect for reading emergencies. And each story is different and magical in its own way.
Check out ONE STORY online. I love it even more after reading their mission statement:
“One Story is a non-profit literary magazine that features one great short story mailed to subscribers every three weeks. Our mission is to save the short story by publishing in a friendly format that allows readers to experience each story as a stand-alone work of art and a simple form of entertainment. One Story is designed to fit into your purse or pocket, and into your life.”
My favorite is the WHY…
“We believe that short stories are best read alone. They should not be sandwiched in between a review and an exposé on liposuction, or placed after another work of fiction that is so sad or funny or long that the reader is worn out by the time they turn to it.”
Your shopping woes are over!
Fa la la la la, la la la!
