Came for the Sleepy Hollow, stayed for the piles of other short stories.

Sleepy Hollow is the classic story of the nerd and jock competing for the affection of the rich girl. The nerd gets friendzoned and then the jock terrorizes the nerd by throwing things at him as he is on his way home.

I don't think I've read any Irving before but I liked the short stories collected. I don't know why, but I expected a book written in 1820 to have a lot of obscure language in it, but this was surprisingly easy to read. Unexpected favorite is the letters to the newspaper by an old man complaining about "kids these days with their ankles showing and lack of morals."

This is a collection of Irving's works. I would recommend getting an edition that only includes pieces by him you really like. I thought most of this was a chore to get through.

You can read more of what I thought of this book on my blog. ( )
