One thing to do is treat it like a magazine rather than a book. Keep it in your car or your bathroom and read it only when you have time. That way, you get to enjoy all the stories, but they're not all you're reading. And yes, I've had that problem sometimes, but other times I can't wait to see how someone tackled the theme. The difference, I think, really depends on how specific the theme is. If all the stories come across as variations on the same story, the theme was too specific. If all the stories come out completely different but with one common element, then I think it works better.
