Once Upon a Time VI

It is time for the Once Upon a Time Challenge! I just happened to be going through my blog posts when Carl put the announcement up, so I thought I would get my post up right away. I have been thinking about it for a while and have all ready rearranged my bookshelves to have some books to choose from.

You can see my reading pool in a separate post found here.

Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time categories. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.

This quest involves the reading of one or more short stories that fit within at least one of the four genres during the course of any weekend, or weekends, during the challenge. Ideally you would post about your short story readings on Sundays or Mondays, but this is not strictly necessary.

Stories are not just limited to the printed page. Many entertaining, moving, profound or simply fun stories are told in the realm of television and film. To participate in this quest simply let us know about the films and/or television shows that you feel fit into the definitions of fantasy, fairy tales, folklore or mythology that you are enjoying during the challenge.
