Deal Me In – Week 28 Wrap Up

20140714-120610.jpg

Below are links to new Deal Me In posts since out last update. Five new stories for your perusal…

I would prefer not to give too much away, but Dale read a great story – Herman Melville’s “Bartleby the Scrivener” http://mirrorwithclouds.wordpress.com/2014/07/10/herman-melville-bartleby/

James read Haruki Murakami and John Hersey this week, comparing their two stories “Firefly” and “A Game of Anagrams,” respectively. Will he find a connection? And which will he like best? Find out at http://jamesreadsbooks.com/2014/07/09/haruki-murakami-vs-john-hersey-a-deal-me-in-short-story-challenge/

Katherine drew a wild card and decided to go with Leonid Andreyev’s story, “Lazarus,” making it the third(?) “twin” (two of us reading the same story) we’ve had this year. Find out what she thought of it at http://katenread.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/deal-me-in-week-28-lazarus/ Will we be blessed with any “triplets” before the year is over? I guess remaining wildcards still at large do make at a possibility…

I read Vladimir Nabokov’s “That in Aleppo Once…” Trivia points go to anyone who knows from what Shakespeare play Vlad lifted that title. Or how to pronounce Vlad’s last name… 🙂 https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/that-in-aleppo-once-by-vladimir-nabokov/

That’s it for now. See you next week!

    I’m confused. Is this for the book club?

    No, this has nothing to do with the Indy Reads Books book club. I’ve never heard any more from them regarding the next meeting. I’m not sure who’s officially “in charge” of that group.
