You’ve still got almost a month to hammer away at your reading goal for 2019. Here’s a list of short works (around 200 or fewer pages) that I’ve collected. And below my list you’ll find a list of other lists.
Good luck. Read on!

Lamenting that her reading time is often confined to weekends, Lorraine Berry here offers a list of books that can be finished over a weekend, which “means a book that clocks in with fewer than 300 pages — and sometimes, even fewer than 200.” An added bonus is the wide variety of titles here.
This list includes fiction and nonfiction.
This list will help me tick off two categories on my reading plan for this year: (1) total number of books read and (2) translated works. Pierce Alquist says she has included here books of “less than ~200 pages.”
From writer Alice McDermott
“If you are looking for quick reads under 300 pages to help increase the number of books you’ve read this year, here is a list of short books to read to fulfill your Goodreads goal.”
These books all clock in at “around 300 pages or less.”
Goodreads suggests both fiction and nonfiction books of fewer than 300 pages.
From Danielle Bucco for Off the Shelf comes this list of “books that you can absolutely finish in one flight!”
Because who doesn’t want to read more crime books?
