New Obsession

Peter Terzian takes a closer look at The Complete New Yorker, which I’m dying to have. It’s an eight-DVD set.

Such bounty can breed obsession. Minutes after popping one of the eight discs into my iMac, the outline of my future became clear. I began making calculations. If I read one complete issue a day for the next 11 1/2 years, I would be finished in the spring of 2017. Of course, so much reading would occupy a few hours of each day. Surely I could shunt some social engagements, make peanut-butter sandwiches for dinner instead of all that time-consuming cooking.

It would be cool to be able to go through the entire fiction archives.
