Deal Me In – Week 19 Wrap Up

20140511-180324.jpg

Below are links to new Deal Me In-related posts since last Sunday. I’m happy to relate that Risa, a fellow “friend of the short story” with whom I go way back to the “Short Stories on Wednesdays” era, is now joining the DMI crew. Welcome, Risa!

Also, last week, I mentioned that Cedarstation was adapting Deal Me In to help “clean up” her TBR list of books. Another blog, Plethora of Books, has now also taken up that variant (“reading roulette”) of the Deal Me In challenge. http://bookchallenges.weebly.com/9/post/2014/05/reading-roulette-card-1.html
