Review: I love anthologies they were by far one of my favorite types of book to read. Those wonderful stories that are short and quick to read, yet leave you thinking afterward. "Take One at Bedtime" is by far one of the best short story anthologies I've read in a long time. The stories are not all scary, there are quite a few that are touching and leave you with a feeling of euphoria at the end. The author did a remarkable job capturing her characters and even though the stories were short you still felt the full emotion you'd get if you were reading a full length novel. This book is well worth the time one would take to read it and I highly recommend it.

  1. If you love anthologies, try Fathers: A Literary Anthology. This is an anthology of essays and poems, not short stories, but many of the pieces read like stories. These incredibly varied father pieces are often moving, surprising, and simply told. The anthology is a delightful sampler of best pieces by some of the best writers in the world, ranging from Margaret Atwood, Bruce Chatwin, Angela Carter, Winston Churchill, Doris Lessing, Alice Munro, and Mordecai Richler to Philip Roth and Virginia Woolf.
