    Smile about new year's resolution

    (1) This year's resolution of mine is to read as many books as possible.

    (2) This year's resolution for me is to read as many books as possible.

    (3) My resolution of this year is to read as many books as possible.

    (4) My resolution this year is to read as many books as possible.

    Which is the best?
    Also, are there any other ways to describe the same meaning as
    the above sentences.

    I suppose the Wikipedia version is strictly 1 Jan - 31 Dec/Romano-Christian. If you want to avoid this sort of cultural bias, I'd suggest something like (d). But otherwise, I agree - 'New Year's resolution' is best.
