If you more or less follow my blog, would you be surprised that this cute little creature lured me into yet another reading adventure? Not only is the image adorable, it also reminds me of my longtime desire to reacquaint myself with one of the best fantasy stories I’ve ever read, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I read it so long ago that I hardly remember anything from it except that there was the Little Prince, the Fox and the Rose, and that the book had an aura of magic that lingers in my memory until this day.
Thanks to 50 Year Project, I got introduced to the Once Upon a Time challenge today and couldn’t resist the temptation to sign up for it. The challenge is hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings and runs between March 21 and June 19.
“This is a reading and viewing event that encompasses four broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology, including the seemingly countless sub-genres and blending of genres that fall within this spectrum.”
There are different levels of participation in this event. At this point, I’ve chosen the Short Story Quest. I’ve got this wonderful book called “Bedtime Stories” that includes 18 short stories — all written by great writers of the past two centuries. Every Sunday I will write a post about a story from the book. I would also like to include The Little Prince on my list of readings and other books in the fantasy genre, simply because I am a big fan of it and will read these books any time of the year, reading challenge or not. :-)
If you would like to join the fun, please visit Stainless Steel Droppings and sign up.
