50 sounds reasonable for 2013. I will furthermore commit to make at least 20 of those from 1001 (any or all editions). I will also commit to read one book written by an Aussie. In 2013 we should also start a thread on the 1001 albums. How many of them do you own, which albums are you missing on that list and which would be on your 101 list.... Now reading the latest Vargas Llosa. After that probably another Mo Yan. I am in a Nobel mood.
