You think you don’t have time to read? Think again. There are plenty of awesome stories you can read in the time it takes to wait for the doctor or take the subway to work. This infographic, created by Ebook Friendly, lists 24 that you could literally read in 24 hours. Admittedly, many of these are closer to short stories than novellas or novels, but they are well worth your time. We can especially recommend Jim Shepard’s “Safety Tips for Living Alone” which was originally published here, in Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading!
