Wow, that is seriously a lot of short stories. I didn't particularly care for the first one, so I'll prob. borrow someone's book when I've nothing else to read.

For me they're a great 'snack' between books. Maybe your library will carry it? :)

I doubt it. Their romance selection really sucks. The whole library seems to be short on books, but when I asked about it, they acted like the amount of books was okay. I'd say that at least 35% of their shelves were empty.

Kimberly Swan said...

Wow, that's a bummer. :( Can you not request books from surrounding libraries?
