Literature: What is Stephen Harper Reading project ends with 100th book

The Saskatoon author Yann Martel, who was sending the prime minister a new book every two weeks is ending the project dubbed 'What is Stephen Harper Reading?'
In the four years of his campaign he had shipped 100 books for Harper to read, and he said that was a good number to end on.  Mr. Martel paid for the books and the shipping himself.  He wrote and enclosed a personal letter with each book. However, Stephen Harper did not respond to him, even once.
You can see the list of books and all the letters on Mr. Martel's website - and it might make a good list for a book club discussion project.
