What is Stephen Harper reading?

Inspired by a "tribute" author Yann Martel (Life of Pi) got an idea and that idea has a website. In his words:

...For as long as Stephen Harper is Prime Minister of Canada, I vow to send him every two weeks, mailed on a Monday, a book that has been known to expand stillness. That book will be inscribed and will be accompanied by a letter I will have written. I will faithfully report on every new book, every inscription, every letter, and any response I might get from the Prime Minister...

Book #1: The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy, sent April 16 2007.
Book #2: Animal Farm by George Orwell, sent today.
