I saw something similar to this on another forum and thought it would be fun to start here. It's pretty straightforward: read 25 books by December 31st 2008. We could each set up a post where we list the books we read and maybe give a bit more information about it. Something like this:  A River Runs Through It and Other Stories by Norman Maclean; 217 pages 3 short stories about life in western Montana around the 1920's-40's. I liked this book. Lots of stuff about lumberjacks and being tough. They don't have to be "traditional" books, either. Feel free to list graphic novels/comics, audiobooks, ebooks, posts by Zenpharaohs, etc. If you're in, make a post.
