Ack! It's almost September and I'm only at 45!

I take part in a 50 book challenge on Shelfari, and while the group bills itself at 50 books you can make your own challenge whatever you want. I had done 61 last year and so I set myself a loftier goal of at least 75. I would be reading more, except, the Olympics have me entranced at night, although not right now as NBC has been totally blowing the programming during the taped portion. Show us finals! Not qualifying rounds unless something major happens! But I digress. (There will be an Olympic blog at the conclusion of the games btw.)
I would really like to read 100 books this year, but I don't know if I can achieve it. I shall do my best though and see what I can accomplish. If anyone has any book suggestions please let me know!

I'd have to go to your shelfari page to see if you've read any of these but just a few you should check out, if you haven't already. Life of Pi or The Life and Times of the Helsinki Roccomatios (I'm sure I spelled that wrong and may have even screwed up the title, it's a collection of 4 short stories)both by Yann Martel. Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Saji. Adverbs and I forget the authors name it's a collection of vignettes that are somewhat linked. And of course my fav. Siddhartha by Herman Hess. All of these are interesting and sense your trying to fit in 100 books there not very long. ( I hope I didn't screw up the names of the books and authors too much.)
