Once Upon A Time Challenge

This Challenge is ENDING today, June 21st, at midnight. Be sure to check out the website for information about how to be eligible for prizes!


Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting The Once Upon a Time Challenge which runs from Thursday, March 22nd until Midsummer Night’s Eve, June 21st.
She says:
"It is a reading challenge to celebrate spring, the time of rebirth and renewal, by experiencing the type of storytelling that connects us with our past.
As a whim reader, it is this season of the year that my thoughts lean to books, (and music, art, etc) that are magical and fantastical. And as we did with the R.I.P. Challenge, I want us to share this experience. I want us to join each other across the world in losing ourselves in the kind of reading that takes us on journeys in our imaginations to times that may not have actually existed, but that feel like they should have."
The four genres you can read from for this challenge: Mythology, Folklore, Fairytale, and Fantasy.
Choose an option:
Quest One: Read at least 5 books from any of the 4 genres.
Quest Two: Read at least one book from each of the four genres of story.
Quest Three: Read at least one book from each of the four genres of story, and finish up the challenge with a June reading of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Quest Four: Read at least one book from the four genres.
You can do one of the four quests or all of them.
