Last year I resolved to read five out of A Clockwork Orange, The Space Merchants, A Princess of Mars,
Last year I resolved to read four of The Einstein Intersection, Rite of Passage, A Time of Changes, The Falling Woman, The Healer's War, Stations of the Tide, and The Terminal Experiment - in fact I read them all.
Last year I resolved to read four more of the Time list of 25 must-read comics. I read only one and didn't enjoy it. I resolve to read another two this year but also to find another list.
Last year I resolved to read a third of the books on my unread list. I came close but didn't quite manage it (41 out of 135).
