The Month in Books - October 2011

In 2011, my goal is to read 25,000 pages by year's end. I measure progress in pages, rather than titles, to avoid any bias toward shorter books. Here's what I read in October:

  1. What Hath God Wrought - Daniel Walker Howe
  2. Andrew Jackson - H.W. Brands
  3. The Impending Crisis - David Potter
  4. The Marriage Plot - Jeffrey Eugenides
  5. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - Jean-Dominique Bauby
  6. Mountains Beyond Mountains - Tracy Kidder
  7. The Greatest Show on Earth - Richard Dawkins

Pages Read: 3,274
Year-to-Date: 24,002
