      I swear every single story but maybe one was depressing as hell. Still good though.

      Another Little Free Library choice:I love short stories. I have the bad habit of reading through the night when I'm in the middle of a good book and short stories help prevent that.To me, having restrictions allow the exercise of a contained creativity.

      Nice to read some stories from a few authors I'd not read before. Sadly most of these stories are just dull.
