My favorite blogger ever, Dewey, is hosting The Martel-Harper Challenge. The M-H challenge is a mini quarterly challenge that lasts three months and you only have to read two books. It's based on the books that author Yann Martel sends Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper every two weeks.
For the October-November-December quarter I plan on reading: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway
