Guantanamo Diary by Mohamedou Ould Slahi
In progress. Very, very sloooowwww progress since this is a hate-read (a term I totally stole from Jana).

I tried and couldn't on this one. I listened to it on audiobook and had I been reading it, I probably wouldn't have got past page 50.
I've completed 6 out of 16, with 4 in progress. I don't think that's too bad for a month and a half into my challenges.
Here are the challenges/clubs I am/was participating in:
