Yep. You read it right. I'm joining another Challenge. Not that I actually have any Arthurian books lying around right now. In fact, I don't have any. But I won't let that stop me! Last year I looked longingly at everyone reading books for this challenge, and this year I am succumbing. And the really, really good thing about this challenge?
I can watch the movie King Arthur with *Clive Owen* and *Ioan Gruffudd* as many times as I like, and get credit for it!!!
Becky's Arthurian Challenge
When: April 2009 through March 2010
Goal: To read books starring characters found in or inspired by Arthurian legends. (King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Lady of the Lake, etc.) There are no set amount of books. Read one or two. Or read a dozen. You set the amount that feels good to you!
If at any time you dislike a book, then feel free to discard it and pick up another. Don’t feel obligated to push through a book you don’t like on my account!!!
What about movies? What about graphic novels? What about comics? What about audio books? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. All of those things count. So though it says 6-12 books. It can be a variety of things–book, movie, tv show, comic book, graphic novel, etc.
Kids books. YA books. Adult books. All count.What about series books? Or series books in all-in-one editions? I’m leaving it up to you.
What about short stories or poetry? Yes and yes. Anything really can go.
What about rereads? Sure why not!Go here to sign up, if you too have been wondering where the challenge was being held.
Yum. I feel a movie marathon coming on.
If only the tv series' Merlin' from the UK would finally come on our tv over here!!!
****Added later: I have The Once and Future King by TH WHite sitting on my TBR shelf, for the Awards Challenge, so this will go right onto this challenge list too. This is fun! I get to look for books to read! Maybe reread Mary Stewart's books, which I also own.....*****
