Once Upon A Bookshelf

Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Once Upon A Time Challenge

A Midsummer Night’s Dream concluded the Once Upon a Time Challenge for me – with two days to spare. I didn’t completely stick to my plan, but I did read most of what I wanted to (and then some). The only one that I didn’t get around to finishing was Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur, which I got half way through before getting distracted by other books. *cough*

I ended up reading the following books:

I had so much fun with this challenge; I want to thank Carl for organizing and running the challenge. Not only did I get introduced to new authors that I now will need to read more of (Gaimon and Block), I revisited authors I had previously enjoyed (Shakespeare, Black, Card). I’ve now got a bunch of other books I need to add to my TBR list; most importantly I’ve also discovered a handfull of other blogs that I’ve added to my Bloglines feeds.

    I’ve never made a challenge for myself but after talking to a friend i realized i needed one.

    This is what made me realize i needed to make my own challenge. I have two books from christmas, a book i randomly bought, a book i bought i long time ago, a book my sister bought me, a book i preordered that i get this summer, two book a friend gave me, four books i bought yesterday, and the seventh harry potter (which means i have to reread all of the others).

    This is a total of 19 books and i told my friend i could read them by the end of the summer. This is my challenge and i think i can do it.

    I’ll tell you how it goes.

    That’s so cool that you read a Ruth Manning-Sanders book. What made you pick that one?

    Here’s more info about her that I have compiled: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Manning-Sanders

    Chris – I picked that one up because it was the one sitting on my bookshelf. ;) I don’t know when or where I got it, but it’s been there for YEARS.
