Deal Me In Short Stories


I am going to participate in the Deal Me In Short Story Challenge.  I love short stories but rarely read them...this is a great challenge for me to read one per week!

What is the goal of the project?
To read 52 short stories in 2014 (that’s only one per week)
What do I need?
1) Access to at least fifty-two short stories (don’t own any short story collections or anthologies? See links to online resources below)
2) A deck of cards
3) An average of perhaps just thirty minutes of reading time each week
