Summer Challenge: 13 Short Stories

While listening to Books on the Nightstand this week, host Michael Kindness announced that he is committing to a summer reading challenge. This one is to read a list of 13 short stories. Here they are:

The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce
A Perfect Day for Bananafish by J.D. Salinger
A Good Man Is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor
Child’s Play by Alice Munro
The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell
The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
The Catbird Seat by James Thurber
The Aleph by Jorge Luis Borges
Zombie by Chuck Palahniuk
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Semplica-Girl Diaries by George Saunders
Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut

I have read a number of these, but many will be new for me. I think I will do this challenge, too!
