Tournament of Reading Challenge 2010

I'm adding one more reading challenge for 2010, the Tournament of Reading Challenge that is hosted by Medieval Bookworm.

This challenge is designed to get us all reading a little more medieval literature in 2010. The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st, 2010, and will be hosted at Medieval Bookworm. Challenge genres include history, medieval literature, and historical fiction. Medieval, for simplicity of definition, will be from 500-1500, and literature from all over the world is welcome, not just western Europe. There are 3 levels:

Peasant – Read 3 medieval books of any kind.
Lord – Read 6 medieval books, at least one of each kind.
King – Read 9 medieval books, at least two of each kind.

I have at least three books planned for this challenge, but I may increase my numbers as the year progresses. (There are several suggested readings for this challenge on the sign-up post.)

l. The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick
2. Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman
3,4,5. The Heaven Tree Trilogy by Edith Pergeter (counts as three books)
6. to be selected

Bring on the chainmail!
