Originally purchased this book for my college english class that I was dreading to take. After the first few weeks in the class I was reading short stories such as a Rose For Emily, The Lesson and many more clasics. I found myself reading short stories out of this book for fun. It's eaither this book or the instructor that got me into reading short story classics. Once the semester has ended I only had one thing on my mind money for graduation and selling my books back. This is the one book I should have kept.
