Once upon a time III Challenge

This is a wonderful challenge being hosted over at Stainless Steel Droppings. There are many levels to this challenge and I'm sure, being the lover of Fantasy that I am, I could easily participate in one of the more involved levels. However, I'm going to honor the commitments I've made to myself to finish other challenges and read something outside of fantasy for awhile. So I'm going with The Journey (as explained on the Stainless blog):

This is really as simple as the name implies. It means you are participating, but not committing yourself to any specific number of books. All reading is a journey, perhaps none more so than reading fantastical fiction. By signing up for The Journey you are agreeing to at least read one book within one of the four categories during March 21st to June 20th period. Just one book. If you choose to read more, fantastic! If not, then we have still had the pleasure of your company during this three month reading journey and hopefully you have read a great book, met some interesting people, and enjoyed the various activities that occur during the challenge. It has always been of utmost importance to me that the challenges that I host be all about experiencing enjoyable literature and sharing it with others. I want you to participate. Hence, The Journey.

I will be choosing Memory and Dream by Charles De Lint. I already have it sitting on my shelf waiting to be read....I can't wait!

If you only have one book to choose for the journey, you cannot go wrong with one by Charles de Lint! Great choice!

Thanks so much for joining in. I hope the de Lint book is magical and I hope you enjoy all the challenge events that occur over the course of the next three months.
