This is an oversized, heavy paperback, so please send me a personal message if you request this book. Please note that there are only two or three small notes made in the margins.
This book is instructional in nature for teaching writing to high-school and college-aged students, but it is also a reader that contains an assortment of short stories. For example, this book begins first with one or more stories followed by questions and instructions for the student regarding how to write about that story. Additionally, I have found that this type of book is personally useful for discovering authors I have not read before.
I have learned also that there may have been a story I disliked written by a particular author, but then read another enjoyable story by the same author in one of these types of books.
