The Long and Short of It

Posted: December 26, 2011 in Musing

So I am slowly but surely finishing my novel.  The length at this point is 30,000 words, which would make it – what? – about 100 pages?  I believe I am getting near the end (of course I have two dozens rewrites to go), but I am wondering: does the length of a novel make a difference for you in deciding if you will read it?  My thought is that a story needs to be as long as it needs to be, but if something is too short (or too long?), would this make a difference in your reading choices?  Would you  consider reading a novel that is 125 pages long?  Just wondering… Any thoughts?
