Sorry for not getting this post up yesterday. I’ll blame the National Football League. 🙂 Below are links to new posts this week. If I’ve missed someone, please don’t hesitate to put a link in the comments. If a participant has been inactive for a while, I may not check his/her blog every week to look for activity to link to.

Dale read Graham Greene’s “Dream of a Strange Land” http://mirrorwithclouds.wordpress.com/2014/09/11/graham-greene-dream-of-a-strange-land/

Randall read George William Curtiss’s “Titbottom’s Spectacles” http://timeenuf.blogspot.com/2014/09/titbottoms-spectacles-by-george-william.html

Katherine read Janet Berliner’s “Indigo Moon” http://katenread.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/deal-me-in-week-37-indigo-moon-by-janet-berliner/

I read Mark Helprin’s “Perfection” https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2014/09/15/perfection-by-mark-helprin/. This story was another DMI2014 “twin” as Dale posted about it also this year. If you want to revisit his take on it, it may be found at http://mirrorwithclouds.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/perfection-by-mark-helprin/

I wanted to mention also that Randall is using the “Deal Me In machinery” to help him participate in the Ninth Annual R.I.P. Challenge. See his post at http://timeenuf.blogspot.com/2014/08/readers-imbibing-peril-rip-ix.html for the details.

That’s it for this week. Until next time, happy reading!
