...Wow, that will bring me to 50 exactly. Did not realize that when I bought Atonement on Sunday.

It seems most of these books are longer than the ones I've already read. I hope I make it! Still, that gives me about 8-10 days per book, and I'm sure most won't take nearly that long. And out of all 50, only one will be a repeat (Freakonomics). If I find myself ahead of schedule though, I might re-read the HP books. My mom's reading them for the first time (!!!), and it's making me want to read them again. Especially with the next movie coming out, and with my recent trip to the HP theme park. I love Harry Potter!
