Deal Me In 2015 – Week 17 Wrap-Up

Congratulations to everyone who participated in Dewey’s Readathon on Saturday. I was an unofficial participant and had a blast, including in my reading seven short stories – none of which were on my Deal Me In deck, though. Plus, I got the idea to put a Deal Me In twist on the next Readathon in October, when I think I may come up with a Euchre Deck of 24 stories to take up my Readathon reading. Anyone care to play along?

Below are links to new posts this week:

Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews summarizes her April DMI stories, which include “The Child’s Story” by Charles Dickens, “Curious if True” by Elizabeth Gaskell, “Death Ship” by Richard Matheson, and “A Correspondence and a Climax” by L.M. Montgomery http://blbooks.blogspot.com/2015/04/april-short-stories.html

“o” at Behold the Stars writes about “How One Should Read a Book” by Virginia Woolf http://beholdthestars.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/how-should-one-read-book-by-virginia.html

    I think my string of preempted readathons will continue; I believe a friend’s wedding is the weekend of the next one. If not, I’m down for a euchre deck readathon.

      I’ve always liked including some short stories in my Readathon reading. I like being able to “finish something” rather than spend all day in ONE book.

    It’s been too long. I promise to review some short stories this month.
