The Arthurian Challenge
Where: Becky's Very-Own Arthurian Challenge blog
Goal: To read 6-12 books starring characters found in or inspired by Arthurian legends. (King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Lady of the Lake, etc.)
How: To sign up, leave a comment on this post. It’s quick and simple. Just announce your intention to participate.
Rules: I don’t really believe in having many rules.
No lists are necessary. You can change your mind on WHAT you reading or should that be WHO you’re reading at any time.
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 reviews? I’ll be doing Mr. Linky most likely. If not, I’ll do it the old fashioned way. You can leave a link if you’ve got a blog. Or you could write a review in the comments. This could be a sample review for those hesitant to write and share. “I read The Sword in the Stone. I liked it. Would recommend to others.” It can be really short and sweet and simple. Title of the book. Name of the author. A few adjectives describing how you felt about it. If you enjoyed it. It’s so not a big deal.
