The Once Upon a Time Challenge is here!!

Its time for the Once Upon a Time Challenge.  Now, I've never participated before, but I'm thinking this is finally the year I'm going to dive right into some fantastical reads or films and join in on the fun.  Here are the details (from Carl's site, Stainless Steel Droppings):

"Thursday, March 21st begins the seventh annual Once Upon a Time Challenge. This is a reading and viewing event that encompasses four broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology, including the seemingly countless sub-genres and blending of genres that fall within this spectrum. The challenge continues through Friday, June 21st and allows for very minor (1 book only) participation as well as more immersion depending on your reading/viewing whims.

Now, for the particulars:
The Once Upon a Time VI Challenge has a few rules:
Rule #1: Have fun.
Rule #2: HAVE FUN.
Rule #3: Don’t keep the fun to yourself, share it with us, please!
Rule #4: Do not be put off by the word “challenge”."

Sounds pretty awesome, right?  I know I'm excited, especially since I'll be watching The Hobbit - finally!  I just got my copy, so I'm thinking its the perfect way to kick off the Once Upon a Time Challenge.   Plus, there are different levels of participation, which means I can choose to read just one book and/or watch films - talk about a stress-free challenge! I love it!

So, if you want to join in on the fun, check out Carl's site and read all about the Once Upon a Time Challenge - you know you want to! And, now I'm off to watch me some hobbits cavorting around Middle Earth.

I just recieved my Hobbit Movie so I guess I will get to include that this year! I read the book not long before the movie came out... I hope you enjoy it all!
