Read from May 09 to June 09, 2012

It took me forever to read this (and an extra two weeks to update GR) but I finally finished! It's hard to give this an overall rating because the stories really run the gamut, but I will give it a solid 3. I really liked about 1/4 of the stories, disliked 1/4, and was just sort of 'blah' for half. Not the most glowing review, but since the stories are short, it wasn't painful reading the bad/okay stories, and I did like having variety.
