    I like to read novel as well as the short stories.  But I prefer to read the short stories.

    For me there is no question, novels beat short stories hands down. I don't dislike short stories, but when I read fiction, I prefer to travel to a different world and then stay there for a while. Short stories don't have the same amount of time to build the world, nor do I get to stay as long. I have a similar struggle when it comes to writing novels versus short stories. I'm not trying to imply that writing a novel is easy, but I honestly struggle more with shorter fiction and I find myself losing interest when I try to write a new one or edit an old one. I'm not sure why I feel this way, but it seems to have followed me throughout my experiences with literature.

    Most of all, I like essays. Behind the essay, I like the novel. I prefer novels to plays, but I prefer plays to short stories. I like short stories more than poetry.

    Definitely novels; either fiction or nonfiction. I seem to "get lost" (become engulfed) in novels; whereas, short stories seldom allow for this deeper association...  I recently read an excellent, yet unknown  novel by the infamous New Yorker, William Peter Blatty called Demeter.
