Deal Me In – Week 32 Wrap Up


My apologies for being a little late with this week’s wrap up.


I found another blogger doing a challenge similar to ours, but much more ambitious. Check out “the short story box” –

If, like me, Returning Reader’s short story deck has whetted your appetite for African short stories, check out the following:

This one sounds interesting:


Dale read Truman Capote’s “Mojave”

Candiss read the Guy de Maupassant classic, “The Necklace” –


Katherine read “Diamonds aren’t Forever” by S.P. Somtow

Randall read “Dimension” a story by one of Deal Me In’s most popular authors, Alice Munro

Me? I’m behind and haven’t read my 32nd story, “The Redfield Girls” by Laird Barron…

That’s it for now. Until next week – happy reading!

    Thanks for linking to my short story box post. I’ve experienced a real evolution in my short story reading by doing it the randomized way – it just makes it so much more fun. I just checked out your Deal Me In challenge page – thank you for posting those links to the short story resources. I will definitely be browsing through them.

      No problem. 🙂 I agree there’s a huge “fun” element in letting fate decide your next story, whether it’s once a week or once a day. From the sound of your post, you have plenty of stories to last you awhile, even at a rate of one per day. 🙂

    Me, I’m behind, too. Had a bit of oral surgery after which I could only sleep for four days. Will be back on board soon.
