You don't always have the time or patience to sit down with a full novel, so a collection of short stories can make the transition to bed after a long day a relaxing one. We're besotted with Big Cats: Stories ($14) by Holiday Reinhorn. We gobbled up the collection in short order - each tale takes up only a couple of pages. The title story, Big Cats, is the perfect slice of childhood friendship, though the girls are far from the necklace-sharing-Nickelodeon kind of BFFs. All of Reinhorn's characters are slightly neurotic, flawed, and surprisingly easy to connect with.
