Reading list 2011 first half

I have not done a monthly reading list or set a particular numerical goal in 2011 like in recent years. My real goal this year is to complete some series, clear off some reading lists I have, and to get caught up on some comic series so that I am close to current and can read new issues as they come out without being so far behind. The list is not as OCD as previous years, but close.
