    1. Not a fan of Hans Christian Anderson at all. Most of his stories were short and pointless and the ones with morals made me feel like I was being preached to.

    2. I tried to read this book, front to back, as the 800 page book I read for the 2017 Advanced Popsugar Challenge. However, after months of struggle, I decided it wasn't worth it, and I continued flipping through it to just read stories that appealed to me. With 100+ writings, and some of them quite long, not all of them are winners or well known by casual fans. But I found some new favorites, like the story "The Shadow," and I look forward to returning to the tome to browse the writings again.
