I read Alice Munro’s “Some Women” but haven’t cobbled together a post yet (It was great, though) so look for two posts from me in the coming week. Maybe.🙂

That’ is for this week. We’ve made it through the first month of Deal Me In, but their are still hundreds of stories (& essays, poems, plays, fairy tales) waiting their turn in the draw to keep us entertained for the rest of the year!

    I’ve been wanting to try Munro’s short stories. I have two of her collections sitting, neglected, on my bookshelves at home.
