2011 Reading Challenge: Read-a-Myth

Another reading challenge that I have discovered is The Read-a-Myth Reading Challenge hosted by JoV of Bibliojunkie and Bina of If You Can Read This. This is a great challenge for me because it centers around the Canongate Myth Series that I blogged about earlier this year. Since I have yet to read any of the books in the series, now I have the perfect motivation to do so.

I have chosen to participate at Level 4 Ogma: The God of All Myths! The rules for this level are to mix and match of any eight books from the myth series or any mythology books, with the following conditions:

Must cover more than 3 countries.
Must contain at least 1 non-fiction book on mythology study.

The tentative list of books that I plan to read for this challenge are as follows:
1. A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong
2. The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood (Canada)
3. Weight by Jeanette Winterson (England)
4. Lion's Honey by David Grossman (Israel)
5. Binu and the Great Wall by Su Tong (China)
6. Orphans of Eldorado by Milton Hatoum (Brazil)
7. American Gods by Neil Gaiman (England)
8. Polyxena by H. Allenger (U.S.A.)

Books read for this challenge:
1. Beastly by Alex Flinn (U.S.A.)
2. American Gods by Neil Gaiman (England)
3. The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood (Canada)
4. A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong
5. A Midnight Dance by Lila DiPasqua (U.S.A.)
6. Abandon by Meg Cabot (U.S.A.)
7. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire (U.S.A.)
8. Lion's Honey by David Grossman (Israel)
