Oh, gee ... I suppose I should join this thing, having already read 51 books this year, and currently being in #52, #53, and #54!
Where exactly is this over on LJ?
I'm a member of a different challenge, where the aim is to read one's own height (or more) in a year. I'm halfway up my thigh for the second time...
I crosspost everything to my journal...it's really cool to have a record of what I've read, because I do forget. I just started reading a book, thinking it was a new read, and quickly realized it wasn't, but I'd forgotten. Also I didn't like it that much, so it was a waste of time :P
Phht, whatever, my first book of this year was finished at 2am the morning of the first :)
I'm also probably going to attempt The Historian again, which I got about halfway through last year, and possibly one other book, Pure Drivel by Steve Martin, which I didn't like much but read half of...and it's quite short, so I may as well finish it.
Also, if anyone is interested in a less insanely huge version of the livejournal 50bookchallenge, there are a few similar-but-smaller communities out there. It's too big for me to, I had to take it off my friends list, so I joined 50_in_07 (which is quite small) and I've seen a couple others, such as book_it_2007.
I slowed down significantly after university started again (after reading 9 books in January), and now I'm reading my 14th book this year, Party of one : the loners' manifesto by Anneli Rufus.
I am in the 15,000 pages challenge as well and am proud to say that despite reading so few books, my pages are already up to 10,515.
For me it works best if I have a direct challenge partner, who is as competitive as I am and an avid reader. In this case, my mother. :)
(Even though I constantly lament the unfairness of her reading only German and me working my way through English and French books as well, but those are my choices, so I'll have to live with that.)
I am up to my sixteenth book and have read almost 6,000 pages (also a member of 15,000 pages).
Well I am off to do some reading and watching some TV and having some B&J ice cream.
I'm a member of the 50bookchallenge. The group is cool, however, since I'm deployed in Baghdad, Iraq, I have haven't had too much time to participate in the online group. Maybe I should post some more to that particular group.
Currently reading The Last Juror by Grisham. He has to be one of my favorite American authors because of his immense popularity and great stories. I love reading his books almost as much as I enjoy eating ice cream.
Take care people.

For some of us, who have more time, that's more like an actual challenge than '50' ;) I'm on 16 already, and it isn't even February yet.
Of course, I could just blow through a bunch of fiction if I wanted to pad the numbers ...
I have a loose goal of 100 books this year but 80 would be just fine with me (I've read 25 so far).
