Be Aware, It's An Abridged Edition

I had read the unabridged book and remembered stories I wanted to hear again for next month's book group discussion. I downloaded the book from my iPhone, and didn't see that it was an abridged edition. This version is very nice, but it leaves out at least two of the stories I really liked.

I enjoyed listening to the stories in this collection, just know that you are missing some of the best if you don't also read the unabridged version.
