Once Upon a Time III Reading Challenge

It's time again for Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge.

I'm going to do Quest the First, which involves reading at least five books in the four categories (fantasy, fairy tale, folk lore and mythology) between 3/21/09 and 6/20/09. I actually wouldn't mind doing Quest the Second, which is to read one book in each category, but I'm not sure I have the time to scope out books in those categories. I know I have easy access to fantasy, and I have one mythology themed book I've been meaning to read for years, but I don't have fairy tale or folklore books that I haven't read lying around the house. So I may switch it over to Quest the Second if I happen to fall into such a reading list, but I'm not going to worry about it much if I don't.

I know I'll definitely be reading the following:

The Forgotten Beasts of Eld - Patricia A. McKillip
The Nibelungenlied

For the rest, I'll see what comes to me.

I read my first Patricia McKillip last year for this challenge and fell in love with her writing. Enjoy your reading!

I have a list of 27 books, so I certainly have a wide choice.
So far I'm doing Quest the First as well. :)

I love Patricia A. McKillip. I haven't read Forgotten Beasts of Eld in forever! I remember being so excited as a teenager when I finally tracked a copy of that book down.

Thanks so much for joining in the challenge, I really appreciate it.
