You make a good point about adding in some goals.
For the most part, I am interested in reading about any topic as long as it is well framed and the person/people behind it are obsessive. But you are right that it is good to set some goals so you don't end up in the same place you were last year,
There are a few areas of interest that I am seeking to know more about this year:
701 Arts: Philosophy & theory — I want to know who is writing about the state of the image, culture, and media beyond your average 'media' hawk.
346 Law: Private law — I am interested in the public perception of identity and privacy.
334 Economics: Cooperatives
But like I said, I am open to anything that surprises.
