Goal: 150 books, minimum 5 from Top 100 SF&F list

I'm going to shoot for 150 books in 2012, with the majority being library ebooks. I would like to minimize putting money in the pockets of the Big 6 when I can. There are some series for which I can't get all of the ebooks from the library and there are about 12 books coming out in 2012 in various series that I follow. I'm also setting a goal of minimum 5 of these books from NPR's "Top 100 SF&F books of all time" list. Candidates:

1. Patrick Rothfuss "Name of the Wind" Read 5/5 stars
2. Robin McKinley "Sunshine" Read 3/5 stars
3. Neil Gaiman "Neverwhere" Read 4/5 stars
4. Jasper Fforde "The Eyre Affair" Read 5/5 stars
5. Diana Gabaldon "Outlander" Read 5/5 stars

Series Read in 2012:

1. Weather Warden by Rachel Caine (9 books) 2/5 stars
2. Allie Beckstrom by Devon Monk (8 books) 5/5 stars
