Not sure how many books I read in a year, but it'll be interesting to keep some sort of record.

Off the top of my head, so far this year, I've read:

1) Sweetness and Power: The Place of Sugar in Modern History by Sidney W. Mintz
2) Weaving New Worlds: Southeastern Cherokee Woman and their Basketry by Sarah H. Hill
3) The Social Life of Things: Commodities in Cultural Perspective edited by Arjun Appadurai
4) A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
5) The Dramatic Imagination by Rovert Edmond Jones
6) Hamlet by Shakespeare
7) The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell

Along with hundreds of pages in the form of articles.

If this list is anything to go on I probably won't get to 25 books, and definitely not to 50, but we'll see.

It seems like I went to college and stopped reading fiction.

Finished awhile ago, The Matter of Images: essays on representation by Richard Dyer, and Dress Code: Understanding the Hidden Meanings of Women's Clothes by Toby Fischer-Mirkin.

I'm also about halfway through both Fashioning the Bourgeoisie: A History of Clothing in the 19th Century by Philippe Perrot, as well as, Pride and Prejudiced by Jane Austen (finally something not completely brain warping ).

Fashioning the Bourgeoisie: A History of Clothing in the Nineteenth Century, written by Philippe Perrot, translated by Richard Bienvenu.

Completely, and utterly fascinating. Perrot has an ability to clearly verbalize the connections, and the interplay, between clothing and society, in a way that I haven't seen any other author do as well.

Focus: A simplicity manifesto in the Age of Distraction by Leo Babauta

It can be found here: http://focusmanifesto.com

I'm not sure I entirely agree with everything he says, but it sure brought up some very interesting ideas about focusing, technology, and about how accessible and immediate we've come to expect everyone and everything to be.
