Deal Me In 2015 – Week 16 Wrap Up

The weeks are flying by and we are getting close to being 1/3 of the way through our Deal Me In decks. Are you still with us? Have you fallen behind? Don’t despair – with short stories, it doesn’t take long to catch up. I’d rather not admit how far I was behind at one point in my inaugural year of this challenge. :-)  AND I know several participants are keeping pace but not necessarily posting about the stories they read (which is fine – as the “rules” of Deal Me In emphasize); I invite them to comment on a weekly wrap up post or two, though, to let us know how they are doing. Living vicariously through others’ reading and blogging is a big part of DMI!  Below are links to new posts since last week’s update:
