The Thirty Stories Challenge

This is the first time I am doing a Thirty (something) Challenge. Actually I made this up so that I could get out of my lazy butt and read something other than fanfictions. At the same time I am doing this to promote Project Gutenberg, a site that has free ebooks. Although not all of the stories from the list are from the site but most of them are. Also, the genre of the stories are very varied which is why I also wanted to make the list so that I won’t consistently stick with fantastical stories (although I included some here). Also, I am unfamiliar with some of the titles, so I won’t give any short summary or whatsoever. You can Google it if you are interested and also please don’t spoil me. Other than that, feel free to comment!
