A Tournament of Reading
I posted earlier about some of the reading challenges I'm planning to participate in this year. One that I think is just perfect for me this year is this one, put on by Medieval Bookworm.
I'm going for the King level, which means nine medieval books this year. If we weren't heading into medieval times in school this year, I'd probably have gone for Peasant. I'm posting a list right now, with the caveat that it may change as the year goes. If I blog about individual books as the year goes on, I'll link that here later.
1. The History of the Medieval World by Susan Wise Bauer
2. The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England by Ian Mortimer
1. The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell
2. The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick
2. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
