Deal Me In 2016

In 2015, I was on a roll with this challenge, then, eight stories in, failed as gloriously as I had begun.  On the bright side, I still have my list and eight new stories to replace the "read" ones.  I'm going to ace it this time (pun intended)!  :)

  1. I really hesitate to look at your Deal Me In lists. Why? Because you always have so many tempting titles that I end up wanting to add to my list ..... way more than I have room for! I love your fairy tale category. I'm tempted to change out my children's classics category for it, but hopefully next year I can do a concentrated read of fairy tales. Chesterton's In Defense of Sanity looks particularly good. I'll have to check that one out.

    All the best with this challenge!

    1. Thanks, good luck to you too! :) I know the feeling, when I see other people's DMI lists, almost always I wonder "hm, should I have added that one instead?!". Fairytales are fun, though Grimm is making me very glad I grew up in the age of Winnie the Pooh and Barney. :)
