how long is too long
>>
>>7623191
Anything longer than whatever the word limit for post on /lit/ is bores me. I only read short stories / books so that I can tell other people I've read them, or as a means of shoring up my self-esteem by convincing myself I'm a misunderstood intellectual whenever I feel I have no value as a human being. The shorter the better, unless it's a long one where I can read the first passage and skip to the last passage and get the "jist" of it.
