The Time Has Come…

The time has come! In my mind now it’s officially Springtime! … according to the calendar it starts tomorrow, but I count the onset of Spring by Carl V! His Once Upon a Time challenge has been the highlight of my spring for the last two years, and tonight he has just announced the 3rd year’s version. I’m going to do this:

Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time III criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythologyโ€ฆor your five books might be a combination from the four genres.

I’m putting together a pool of books and authors to choose from for this challenge, but I also want the freedom to choose as I go along and discover new possibilities and new paths. Like it was for the last two years, I know this will be a very enjoyable journey!
Click here to read my list of books chosen for this challenge!

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.
