Arthurian Legends 2012 Challenge - My list

So of course I am signing up for my own challenge! I love books that deal with knights, kings, princesses, battles and some magic and above all I love the Legends of King Arthur!

1. This challenge runs from January 1st, 2012 through December 31st, 2012. You can join at any time but the books must have been read in this time frame.
2. Any books read for this challenge can be applied towards other challenges
3. You can read any books, new or re-reads, as long as they have to do with some form of the Legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
4. If you have a blog, please create a sign up post and bring the link here so I can come and cheer you on. 
5. I will have monthly updates and encourage you to join me, but it is not required.
6. Pick a level from the below listed, you can always go up a level if you are reading extra books.
7. Have Fun!!

The Levels:
1-5 Books ~ Guinevere
6-10 Books ~ Round Table
11 -15 Books ~ Camelot
16-20 Books ~ Merlin
20-30 Books ~ King Arthur
30+ Books ~ Excalibur

So I have boat loads of these books both on my shelves and in my TBR pile, so I need to pick the ones I want to read.

I think I am going to go with the Camelot level and possibly obtain Merlin!

  1. I don't think I've read an 'Arthurian Legend' book before, but they sound interesting. Best of luck with this one! New follower :)

  2. The fun thing about Arthurian Legend books is the different point of views authors get to play with, I have read tons of these and the story is never the same.

    Thank you and Thanks for the follow!
