Pinar Celebi (pinuccia) I have decided to take this challenge for myself together with a 40 pages/day target. This is a quite tough challenge for me as I have been a quite lazy reader in the past few years. I've been moving along well so far!

As I am a newbie in this website, I'll start with giving the info about how far I am as of today and will try to update as time goes along. I'll also share if I meet my 40 pages/day target or not. Mostly I'm reading Turkish translations of the books mentioned so the page numbers differ.

1) Jakob the Liar by Jurek Becker
2) Şu Çılgın Türkler by Turgut Ozakman
3) The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
4) The Word for World is Forest by Ursula Le Guin
5) A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
6) Ports of Call by Amin Maalouf
7) The Stone Raft by [a:Jos�aramago|3182322|Jos
