Two of my favourite annual challenges are back!

It is that time of year that I have been eagerly waiting for which brings the return of two of my favourite challenges from last year.
The Once Upon A Time Challenge enters its fourth year and officially begins on Sunday, March 21st and ends June 20th. There are six levels of participation and I am going for Quest The First. For this level, here are the rules.
Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time IV criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.

If you are interested in joining in then pop over to Carl's blog Stainless Steel Droppings and join in the fun.

Another one of my favourite challenges is Trish's Non Fiction Five Challenge which begins May 1st and ends September 30th.

Here are the rules.

1. Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2010 (please link your reviews on Mister Linky each month; Mister Linky can be found at the beginning of each month on this blog)

2. Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices (i.e.: 4 memoirs and 1 self-help)

If you want to join in the fun, then pop over to Trish's blog Trish's Reading Nook and join in the fun.


  1. This will be my first year participating in Once Upon a Time!!

  2. I absolutely LOVED the RIP challenge last fall! I would like to participate in the Once Upon a Time challenge, but I am just not sure that I have the time. I'll have to scrutinize my schedule and see if I can fit it in :)

    Have fun with these two great events!

  3. I'll be joining Once Upon a Time too for sure!

    I emailed you a while back asking what antivirus you use that pops up warnings for my site, so I may be able to test it here. Please let me know! :)

  4. I'm really looking forward to learning of your book choices/reading your reviews for the Once Upon challenge. A huge fan of fairy tales, I'm interested to read your views. Have fun and happy reading.

  5. Have fun with these challenges. I didn't know about them. Thanks for mentioning them.

  6. Sweet! You might be able to combine some of these reads. Great to have you on board for the Once Upon a Time challenge.

  7. Good luck Viv. That is a really beautiful button on the Once Upon a Time Challenge.

  8. Ooooh. . . I've said "no more challenges". . . but these are tempting!

  9. YAY! Are you as excited as I am? have been wiating so long to start this challenge...and now its finally here...I'm having trouble deciding on which books to choose, but here's to happy reading!!
