Should I start collecting Green Lantern or Green Lantern corps?

I'm new to the Green Lantern and apart from a few Batman and Superman comics, the DC universe in general. Which Green Lantern title am I better off getting a subscription too? Which one is the best?

Plus all this 52 stuff and issue 0s is really confusing me.

This is my reading list when it comes to Green Lantern:

Everything in bold is essential.
  • Green Lantern: Rebirth
  • Green Lantern: No Fear
  • Green Lantern Corps: Recharge
  • Green Lantern: Revenge of the Green Lanterns
  • Green Lantern Corps: To Be a Lantern
  • Green Lantern: Wanted: Hal Jordan
  • Green Lantern Corps: The Dark Side of the Green
  • Sinestro Corps War Vol 1
  • Sinestro Corps War Vol 2
  • Green Lantern Corps: Ring Quest
  • Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns
  • Green Lantern: Secret Origin
  • Green Lantern Corps: Sins of the Star Sapphire
  • Green Lantern: Agent Orange
  • Green Lantern: Emerald Eclipse
  • Blackest Night
  • Green Lantern: Blackest Night
  • Green Lantern Corps: Blackest Night
  • Green Lantern Corps: Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns
  • Green Lantern: Brightest Day
  • Green Lantern Corps: The Weaponer
  • Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors
  • War of the Green Lanterns
  • Green Lantern: Sinestro (1-7)
  • Green Lantern Corps: Fearsome (1-7)
  • Green Lantern: New Guardians - The Ring Bearer (1-7)
  • Red Lanterns: Blood and Rage (1-7)

Everything else hasn't been collected yet, so you can find it in stores. Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps are the best of the bunch, but Emerald Warriors and New Guardians are pretty good too. Red Lanterns is somewhat decent. It starts slow but gets better.

As for the current GL titles, Green Lantern is your best bet.

The current GL and GLC titles are good but you should better pick the main one.
