Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #52

There have been several new challenges announced in the past few weeks that are tempting to me. Among them, the "I'm Mad for Maisie" read-a-long at Book Club Girl and Red Headed Book Child's A-Z Mystery Author Challenge. And I just discovered the Wordsworth Classics Reading Challenge.
