Well, Green Lantern didn't really reboot in the n52, but that shouldn't stop you from reading it. Lately, I've been going through the forums proclaiming my undying love for the GL universe. I highly recommend anything really with Geoff Johns as the GL author (he's been on the title for 9 years now, and will actually step down in about 2 weeks).

I'd say you should start by reading Secret Origin (for the Hal Jordan origin story) if you need to.

Otherwise, if you have a rough idea of Hal Jordan's history (regarding 'Reign of the Supermen' from the Death of Superman; Emerald Twilight), then you definitely should check out Green Lantern: Rebirth, Sinestro Corps War, Blackest Night, Brightest Day, War of the Green Lanterns and that pretty much gets you to just before the reboot, and from there it's GL #1, 2, 3...etc.

Hope this helps!
