Too busy to read this summer? Do look at the The Goldfinch's 700+ pages and think, "Why bother starting it? I'll never finish it." Ebook Friendly has a nifty infographic highlighting some books that can (potentially) be read in an hour or less! You can get access to most of these via our catalog in a variety of formats. I personally love the idea of a short read as a way to bust a reading slump or if you feel too overwhelmed by some of the Door Stoppers being published.

But recent life changes and the convenience of Overdrive have won me over.
