Hey, Don't Leave Out Short Story Collections

It's October, and you know what that means. No, I don't mean fall foliage, Halloween, Oktoberfest, the World Series, scintillating political debates, or the continuing collapse of the financial markets. We're talking National Reading Group Month--at least according to the Women's National Book Assn. They even have a list of Great Group Reads, but, alas, it doesn't include any short story collections. I can think of at least a dozen books that would fit the bill.
