    Mine are

    -Finally buy the last 3 books of New Jedi Order and finish up the series
    -finally buy 2-3 of the "New" essential guides. Mostly of the Droids, Characters and weapons technology
    -Now having the chance to buy some Omnibuses such as all of the Omnibuses of the old Marvel Comics Star Wars along with Dark Empire and Tales of the Jedi.
    -to buy the prequel in betweener novels like Outbound Flight, Cestus, Jedi Trial, and Approaching Storm.
    -Decide on whether to buy the Old Republic novels or skip them

    Avoid Approaching Storm. Borrow Jedi Trial so that you can experience the majesty of its soaring prose ("They died when the droids blasted them", for example) without wasting your money on it.

    I finally feel like reading Darth Plagueis.

    Maybe that will get me back into the EU.

    Probably not, though.

    After I finish Fatal Alliance, I want to re-read Vector Prime and then (finally) read the rest of the NJO.

    I bought the Slaves of the Republic and Infinities comics for the library and the kids love them; I should probably read them myself.

    1280x1024. That's what I get for not living in the Core.

    Actual resolutions:
    - Continue my Chronology Project (up to Outbound Flight now). Buy the paperbacks I have to (good thing my library has Approaching Storm and Jedi Quest books)
    - Continue buying Omnibuses, especially Wild Space
    - This year I finally read The Thrawn Trilogy (as a child I didn't like the idea of stories after Episode VI so I missed it). So next year Dark Empire? Or even KJA's trilogy? Or go to the infinity and beyond with The Crystal Star?

    -That book with Vader Malak Malgus on the cover
    -Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan: The Aurorient Express
    -Galaxy of Fear, preferably under the covers with a flashlight so I can live it up oldschool Goosebumps style

    Buy more single issues than trades. I'm suddenly off trades after collecting 120 of them for some inexplicable reason. Single issues are more gratifying.

    Stop buying SW ebooks or ebooks in general. I'm back to paper.

    Yeah, I have a fatalistic view of the EU in 2013 that cancel out my resolutions.

    # Read the rest of the TCW tie-in novels, including TCW:Gambit
    # give the MedStar books a chance
    # write a tragedy about the 6 members of the Emperor's Inner Circle caught on the 2nd Death Star during the Battle of Endor

    ...guess I'll manage the first two at least.

    1. Write Darth Plagueis II, Darth Sidious or FotJ: Confederation
    2. Give KE a chance
    3. Try to be positive about the EU until something concrete comes out about Episode VII

    *Finally finish reading Plagueis. I started this ages ago but just haven't been able to get into it. I think I'm close to where Palps meets Plagueis so hopefully I'll get more interested here.
    *Read the Jaden Korr duology.
    *Read Mercy Kill

    -Read the Lost Tribe of Sith: The Collected Stories
    -Read a few of the other books that have been sitting on my shelf.
    -Pick up Plagueis and give it a read.
    -Pray to the Force, the mists, the Maker, Kyle Katarn that 2013 doesn't bring bad EU news.
    -Contemplate on which medications I should add to my current batch in the event that such a thing happens.
    -Consider seeking therapy, too.

    I need to do this too. Been stuck on Rogue Planet for almost two months now... I like the plot idea, but this beginning with street racing just isn't that interesting.

    Rogue Planet is still mocking me. I gave up sixty pages from the end. I just couldn't force myself to finish it.

    I pledge to read The Crystal Star. Also to dig up my essay from last year about how Vergere's whole philosophy was just proactive Daoism.

    Cloak of Deception continues to mock me. I gave up sixty pages from the end. I just couldn't force myself to finish it ten years ago and haven't picked it up since.

    Finish my Bantam favorites rereading.
    Buy and read the Clone Wars multimedia project, the six novels and three omnibuses, what I consider the real Clone Wars.
    Buy and read Cloak of Deception and Darth Maul: Saboteur so I can properly read Darth Plagueis.
