Once Upon a Time

The words “Once Upon a Time” have always been magical, but the Once Upon a Time Challenge, now in its fifth year, adds an little extra stardust.

There are losts of options and I pondered lots of books, but in the end one outshone the others.

A big book that I began on holiday a couple of years ago, fell in love with, but drifted away from when I had to go back to work …..

“Some years ago there was in the city of York a society of magicians. They met upon the third Wednesday of every month and read each other long, dull papers upon the history of English magic …”

Between now and Midsummer’s Eve I shall be reading Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clark.

And maybe, in between times, one or two of Sylvia Townsend Warner’s  Tales of the Elfin.

What will you be reading?

  1. I love Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. But it does take a while to get into it (I think it took me about 100 pages). And then I was hooked:) I’ve got a selection to choose from and if I can read two, I’ll be a happy bunny.

  2. Wonderful that you are joining in, and you couldn’t have picked a better book. I hope you enjoy it, savor it, and have a good time with it over the course of your reading.
