jessi (infinitevantage) I was thinking of all the books I have read so far this year and I think I am at 18.

1. Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
3. Deadeye Dick by Kurt Vonnegut
4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
6. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
7. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
8. Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix by J.K. Rowling
9. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
10. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
11. The Tales of Beetle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
12. Dying to Win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism by Robert Pape
13. Understanding Terror Networks by Marc Sageman
14. Terrorism: An Introduction by Jonathan White
15. The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman
16. The Lexus and the Olive Tree by Thomas Friedman
17. Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution--and How It Can Renew America by Thomas Friedman
18. Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres

I expect to finish the one I'm on in just a few days. This should be interesting, starting this challenge halfway through the year (although I do expect to have more time to devote to reading very soon), and a little behind the 25 mark. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I love both fiction and non-fiction books, as is probably evident from what I've read so far.
