Over the past year or so I have noticed a distinct change in my reading habits. While I do have a hefty weekly pull list it often becomes more of a chore each week as I attempt to keep up with those purchases. On the other hand, I find myself reading more collected editions like trade paperbacks or hardcovers.
I am on the verge of switching almost exclusively to the collected edition, minus a few one-shots or series. One of the biggest hindrances that I have found is F.O.M.O. (fear of missing out). Then something clicked in my head as I am looking at the selected books in my to-read pile from my bookshelves. I have a book featuring comic strips from the 30s and 40s, a compilation featuring golden to bronze age stories, and a few more modern books ranging from the late 80s to today. So what exactly am I fearing that I will miss out on? Even my DCUI reading is more focused on titles of yesterday than the newest releases, minus club reading.
So I think I know what I will be doing here but what are your thoughts?
