I am so excited that Carl is hosting this challenge again in 2009. There are a variety of different quests and journey's to suit everyone's reading needs. Full details are here.

I have chosen quest the First : Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time III criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.

I am not going to put together a list but these are some of the books I hope to choose from unless I spot something else along the way:

The Young Merlin Trilogy - Jane Yolen
The King Arthur Trilogy - Rosemary Sutcliff
Ladies of the Lake - John & Caitlin Matthews
Deepak Chopra Presents India Authentic Volume 1
Scarlet - Stephen Lawhead
Isode Trilogy - Rosalind Miles
Fables - Bill Willingham
Leaping Beauty - Gregory Maguire
Troll Bridge - Jane Yolen & Adam Stemple
Angel - Cliff McNish
Betwixt - Tara Bray Smith
Making Money - Terry Pratchett
Firethorn - Sarah Micklem
Something by Charles de Lint
Something by Juliet Marillier
Something by Anne Bishop

Great list! Have you thought about which Charles de Lint to add? I just got a brand-new copy at the library of his latest book, The Mystery of Grace, and I'm so excited to read it. He would also be a great one for the short stories, if you have time to do them.
