Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #47

Happy Sunday everyone! I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving! Reading challenges have been popping up ALL over the place. Which is just TOO MUCH fun. I just love discovering new challenges and seeing if they fit into my reading for next year. To keep track of which challenges I'm joining, you might want to visit my challenge blog. Some months are definitely busier than others! I can imagine that November and December are going to be pretty busy over there though! I was very excited to finish Mary Barton. Not only did that mean I got to participate in the Classics Circuit blog tour of Elizabeth Gaskell, but it means I finished up the Guardian Reading Challenge! I'm also busy at work finishing up Nation as well. I hope to complete the Dewey Reading Challenge this week.

I'm really considering joining the Lord of the Rings Readalong. (January through April 2010)

Yay for Pratchett! I haven't read "Nation", though - looking forward to your review, and hoping you're enjoying reading it. L.
