Maybe I can lay this book to rest now! I think the last time I bought it, I had a niggling feeling I may have had it before. But it wasn’t on my read lists. Somewhere along the way, I realized I did have two copies. I have one in my duplicates pile and I had one in an unread box. I picked up the one from the unread box to bring with me.
I started to read it and the stories were familiar. So I thought maybe I’d read some of them, but not finished the book. So I kept reading, and they were still familiar. Now I’ve read them all and I know I’d read them all before. It was published in 2000, so I could have read it before I started making the list.
So now I’ve read it twice, and I have at least two copies. Though I strongly suspect I have three copies. I just have to figure out where the third one is. At least I likely only paid full price for one of them.
In related news, I noticed some typoes, but it wasn’t too bad.
