  One Response to “Deal Me In 2016: Reading Short Stories”

  1. What a great list! I’ve read a handful of the stories and a handful more of the authors you’ve listed even if I haven’t read the specific story. I think you’re in for a great year of short stories! Reading one story a week has become a great habit for me, which I can see myself continuing ‘forever.’ If nothing else, it keeps your reading “at least something” since even on my busiest weeks I can always fit in time for a short story. Good luck with the challenge!
