I will keep track of my reading on this page. Thanks again to Debz for hosting!

This challenge is hosted by Melissa at One Librarian's Book Reviews (1lbr). The idea is to read a classic book or original story, fairy tale, or mythology and compare that to a retelling or a book that relates to the classic story. Melissa lists several options on her site, which you can go to by clicking the image at the top or on her blog's name in this post. She also has different levels you can choose to complete. This year I am trying for the Large Challenge, which is three pairs or six books.
