Carl is hosting this fabulous challenge again - and this is one you don't want to miss, it's become a tradition in the blogging world that spring time is fantasy and mythology time!
Carl is really good at getting everyone to participate, even people who don't have that much time or promised not to join any more challenges. He's created various levels of participation - check them out in his post about the challenge.
I'm opting for Quest the First: Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time III criteria. These criteria are basically fantasy, fairy tale, mythology and folklore. Cool, eh? My possibilities are below...
The challenge ends at Midsummer.
