What a fantastic pic and I love the quote to bits.
Here's what Carl says:
The Once Upon a Time VI Challenge has a few rules:
Rule #1: Have fun.
Rule #2: HAVE FUN.
Rule #3: Don’t keep the fun to yourself, share it with us, please!
Rule #4: Do not be put off by the word “challenge”.
While this event retains the word “challenge” from its earliest days, the entire goal is to read good books, watch good television shows and movies, and most importantly, visit old friends and make new ones. There are several ways to participate, and I hope you can find at least one to your liking:
As usual there are several levels of participation. The one I've chosen is:
Which is to:
Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time categories. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.
My shelf of books has been sitting waiting for a few weeks now:
A fair mix there I think, including... *peers at photo*... two that shouldn't be there at all. Oh well... Also fairly obvious is the fact that one book has a bookmark already in it. This is because I'm already more than halfway through my first read for the challenge: West of the Moon by Katherine Langrish (it's excellent).
And of course *cough* I'm just back from holiday and tend to buy books when I'm away. And *of course* I had a particular challenge in mind while I was looking in Waterstones, Cardiff. Here's what I nabbed:
I haven't checked these out properly on FantasticFiction yet but I think all three are first books in their respective series. If anyone has read any of them, let me know what you thought...
The only other thing to add is that I noticed Carl is going to have group read of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman in May and I may well join that as I've long wanted to read that one.
OK then... I'm off to investigate what others are going to read.
