First I was reluctant to join Fanda's new challenge, because me? reading history? with all the dates and names? Difficult to imagine :) Really, I like reading historical fiction, but I never remember historical facts. I don't know why, I have a very good memory, capable of holding several languages, but all the historical facts just escape it somehow. Sometimes my ignorance is even embarrassing, but I've kind of learned to live with it. So I wasn't going to participate, but then I signed up for The Arthurian Literature Reading Challenge and realized that my first two books for the challenge were actually histories! So I've decided I'll sign up for Student level, which requires reading 1-3 books. Who knows, maybe I'll like it and read something more? :)
So the two books I'm planning to read for the challenge are:
Historia Brittonum attributed to Nennius(9th century) Historia Regum Britanniae by Geoffrey of Monmouth(c. 1136)
Wish me good luck!
