- Read any kind of historical fiction book during 2011 (HF Fantasy, HF Young Adult, etc.)

- Struggling the Addiction: 10 books
- Daring & Curious: 5 books
- Out of My Comfort Zone: 2 books

Chivalrous Deeds: Historical Fiction Challenge, and is similar to the Historical Tapestry challenge, but with a little bit of a twist.
The object of the challenge is to "visit as many courts as possible," which basically means that your historical fiction choices have to have royalty in them.

Who's counting, anyway? I am.
