It was a busy week for the DMI2014 group! Below are links to the nine stories (and counting!) our group has blogged about since the last update. Happy reading!
JamesReadsBooks posted about Tobias Wolff’s “The Other Miller” and Grace Paley’s “In this country, But in Another Language, My Aunt Refuses to Marry the Men Everyone Wants Her To.” (That second title’s a mouthful, eh?)
Dale read George MacDonald’s “The Gifts of the Child Christ” http://mirrorwithclouds.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/george-macdonald-the-gifts-of-the-child-christ/
Katherine Read Dave Wolverton’s “In the Teeth of Glory” and links to another card trick video you don’t want to miss! http://katenread.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/deal-me-in-week-22-in-the-teeth-of-glory/
I went back to Mother Russia for Alexander Kuprin’s “The Outrage – A True Story” https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/story-22-the-outrage-a-true-story-by-alexander-kuprin/

There. That should keep you busy for awhile! :-). As always try to take a moment to visit/comment/like the blog posts of your fellow DMI participants as you see fit.
And what about you other readers who are not “officially” part of the Deal Me In Short Story reading challenge? Did you discover any new stories this week that you’d like to recommend? We’d love to hear about them… 🙂
