Yesterday was March 21st, which for many people means the start of spring. Here in Ireland spring starts on February 1st, and we already have lambs and daffodils about, which means that spring is certainly here. And one sure sign that we’re well into spring for me is Carl’s Once Upon a Time reading challenge. This is the 8th year of it! Congratulations Carl on keeping something going that long.As always the OUaT challenge isn’t really a challenge, just a reading experience. the entire goal is to read good books, watch good television shows and movies, and most importantly, visit old friends and make new ones.
As always I’m going to do The Journey. I like this option because it is so open so if something interferes with my reading plans then I can still participate to a certain extent because all I *have* to do is read one book. I hope to read more, I have my eye on Graham Joyce’s Some Kind of Fairy Tale, and as a classic, Alan Garner’s The Owl Service. Apart from that I have a couple of unread Seanan McGuire books that I’ve been meaning to get to, this’ll be the perfect excuse.
