…unless any more blogging friends come up with more irresistible ones.
Last week I signed up for what I swore were my last challenges of the year; Nicole and Jill, wisely it seems, scoffed at this. Turns out I’d forgotten about the Medieval challenge Meghan was planning on creating, which I’d already unofficially said I’d planned on doing. Maybe this doesn’t count as a new challenge, since I told Meghan a few weeks ago I was going to do it when she floated the idea?
Yah, I didn’t think so either.
A Tournament of Reading challenges us to read more Medieval literature in 2010. You can read history, historical fiction, or actual medieval literature. I’m planning to join at the level of Lord, which means I will be reading 6 books for this challenge, and at least one from each of the above categories. I’m planning on listening to an audiobook of “The Canterbury Tales” for my medieval literature and reading either “The Time Traveler’s Guide to Medieval England” or “The History of the Medieval World: from the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade” (or both) for the history portion. I highly doubt I’ll have a problem filling up the rest with historical fiction.
Meghan also has some great suggestions for books to read too, if you want to join this challenge and aren’t sure what to read.
