My Review:
This book review isn't likely to help anyone else since the book is so old, but it does fulfill my short story challenge, so...

Humorous Short Stories is a collection of 8 funny short stories. They were all about someone pulling a trick over on another person (though they're not always premeditated tricks), and they did come across as funny. Overall, the writing was good, and I could easily follow the story. It was a fun read, but since it's so old that it's probably difficult to find, I wouldn't say it was good enough that people should go out of their way to find it.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
