In which I try not to sound like a jerk, and am unsuccessful.
I don't mean for this to sound arrogant, but I find this community a little eerie on a personal level. I think resolving to read 50 books in a year is fantastic, and I think it's great that these people are doing it. I celebrate it! I honor it!
It's just that in my case, I can't imagine myself reading so few. I read like I breathe, and 50 isn't enough oxygen for me. I'd get anoxic biblioedema and die.
Edit: Although this community does seem like a good place for more book recommendations. Excellent.
