The Once Upon a Time Challenge IX runs until 21 June and describes itself as “a reading and viewing and gaming event that encompasses four broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology and allows for very minor (1 book only) participation as well as more immersion depending on your reading/viewing/gaming whims.” I have signed up for ‘The Journey’ which is the lowest level entry point, committing me to just one book review over the period. I hope I can manage that! I definitely plan to read Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart and hopefully a few others too. For more info, see what host Carl V. Anderson has to say over at his blog, Stainless Steel Droppings.
And thanks as always to TracyK of Bitter Tea and Mystery for drawing my attention to the Challenge.
