I've just had an interesting discussion with someone about reading the work you've had published (short stories, novels, whatever) and we both agreed that we didn't - mostly because you start to re-write it in your head, thinking "Oh God, I should have re-phrased that sentence" or "Why did I choose that word? It sticks out like a sore thumb" and by the time you've finished reading it the glow of holding the publication in your hands has diminuished a little.
These days, when I receive a copy of a magazine or anthology that has published one of my short stories I rarely re-read my story. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the growing pile of publications on my desk (it represents so much hard work) but read my story again? No thanks.
How about you? Do you read the published version of your work? (I'm including you too novelists).
