I only read "Legend of Sleepy Hollow." It's a great story, but the writing is very old-fashioned. I don't think there are more than two lines of dialogue in the whole 40-page story. Hard to get through, and not worth reading more stories.

I read Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. They were pretty good, but I don't feel the need to read the other stories at the moment.
