I Will Read More

A decade ago, reading wasn't on the list of resolutions. This year, it's the fifth-most-popular resolution for 2012, according to the FC Organizational Survey. "It's easy to download books to a Kindle or an iPad and more affordable than in the past," says DeVoll. Assuming you already own an e-reader, you might spend:

$0: Download classics such as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift -- gutenberg.org
$13: Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, downloadable to the Nook -- bn.com
$15: Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, downloadable to the Kindle -- amazon.com

Tally: $28
