Chekhov is a master of the short story and I thoroughly enjoyed the DailyLit.Com version* of this classic which contained nine stories, the best known being the title story but my favorites being the two shortest, The Head of the Family about a man who alternates between being tyrannical and guilty and The Husband which has a great example of Chekhov's pithy character descriptions: "Among the husbands was Shalikov, the tax-collector--a narrow, spiteful soul, given to drink, with a big, closely cropped head, and thick, protruding lips." DailyLit is a great way to read short stories online and this makes the 28th book I have finished through DailyLit since I joined in 2009.
