Come away, O human child…

Tempting Persephone‘s newest post has alerted me to the 6th annual Once Upon a Time reading challenge on the Stainless Steel Droppings blog.

What’s this?  A challenge that involves reading folklore- and fairy-tale-based works?  Away I fly to learn more!

And so, from now until June 19th I shall focus on the following quests within the challenge:



To read one book within each of the following categories:
Fantasy, Folklore, Fairy Tale, and Mythology.

To read Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” sometime in June, or watch one of the movie/theatrical incarnations.


To read one or more short stories, in any of the four categories, during any weekend from now until the challenge ends.

      Thanks! And it looks like you have some great ones on your to-read list, too — Dragonsong is a fun one. I also recommend her Acorna the Unicorn Girl books, at least the first and second ones.

1/100th of an Altairian dollar for your thoughts?
