2011 Once Upon a Time Challenge

I have gotten a few emails in the last week(s) asking me if I am bringing back the "Once Upon a Time" reading challenge. I hadn't given it much thought because to be honest I kind of felt like I did it wrong last year. I read all the books to "finish" the challenge but I didn't hype it up to what it truly could have been.

I plan to fix that in 2011! So here we have it folks......


This challenge is quite simple..... read the fairy tales you grew up reading but from another view than Disney's version. There are so many great fairy tale books out there, that might take the same story we know but with an added twist.


These books can be Young Adult, Romance, Erotic, e-books, audio books.... your only limited by your own imagination.

Levels:


* 1-3 books: Born into Royalty

*4-6 books: Princess in Training

*7-9 books: Awaiting Prince Charming

* 10+ books: Queen Bee

The time frame for this challenge will be January 1, 2011- December 31, 2011. Plenty of time. Please do not start this challenge before the time, and don't use books you have already read. Cross overs are okay!


Please take the above picture and make a post on your blog announcing that you are taking part in this blog and linking it back to this post. This way we can get the word out about this challenge. All active members ( those who finished any level) of this challenge will be entered into a giveaway ( will announce prize at later time) at the end of the year.

Have fun!

Until next time...

I've never done a book challenge before but I totally want to do this one. Do you possibly have a list of some example books in the categories you listed or do you know where I can get some. I put all my reading on hold about four months ago :( and I am missing it.
