10 books in 10 weeks(?)

i don't know if it's possible, given all of the other things i have to take care of this summer, but i'd like to try to follow in the footsteps of this guy (in a somewhat mitigated fashion) by trying 10 books in 10 weeks--from whenever to sometime after that. the 10 thing is a little fuzzy, considering there are more than 10 weeks between here and the beginning of the academic (i.e., death of fun) reading and there are more than 10 books i'd like to read between now and then. here are the books i want to get to so far: 1. Night, Dawn, and The Accident (a trilogy) by E. Wiesel 2. The Life of Sir Issac Newton by R. Westfall 3. The Handmaiden's Tale by M. Atwood 4. The Final Martyrs by S. Endo 5. The Rape of Nanking (Roger's suggestion) by Iris Chang 6. Baudolino by U. Eco 7. Can a Darwinian be a Christian? by M. Ruse 8. Life of Pi by Yann Martel 9. The Moviegoer by W. Percy 10. Manalive by G. K. Chesterton 11. Dream of Scipio by I. Pears But I want suggestions. Do you see anything on here that shouldn't be? Something better? Something that if I died w/o reading it, I would be disappointed? Luke has suggested Islands in the Stream by E. Hemmingway and that will probably be added to the 11 already on the list. I want to start right now...giving myself 12 or even 15 weeks to cover these 10 to 15 books. Is that cheating?
