40 minutes is a respectable walk. Reminds me of my youth when i'd walk my meager allowance to the very same LCS I go to now (same owner too). It was about a mile and a half then, and I live closer now, but I drive there. Usually after work. My books get less and less it seems as time has gone by the last couple years. For every book I add to my reading list, it seems another drops off. I'm usually in the 25 dollar range once a week.
Like Doc Shallot said, I dont normally wait until later to read my books. I'm usually a "now" guy. My ritual consists of getting home and reading the issues I dont want spoiled immediately, while flipping through all the rest of the books (except the last page, though spoilers are usually discovered anyway) Dont know why I flip through some of my books before I read them. Just a lifelong habit. Those books I flip through I usually read later. I also reread my favorites before storing them away.

Scheduling and activity in my life has actually altered my ritual lately. I currently have a stack i'm chipping away at whenever I can find free time. But if I had my choice, they'd all have been read by now.






> I usually get my comics every other week now, and when I do get them, I get a lot of them and split them into two weeks to cover the week I don't get them. For example, this week, I got the following:
>
> SUCCUBUS #1 (Moonstone title)
> MAGDALENA*DAREDEVIL #1 (Image title)
> BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #8 (DC title)
> NEW AVENGERS #42
> MIGHTY AVENGERS #15
> AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE #14 (wha?????)
> AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #663 (I think that's the number; it's the Enforcers issue)
> MS. MARVEL #28
> NEW WARRIORS #13
> GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2
>
> That's ten comics, five for each week. So this weekend, I've decided to read:
>
> SUCCUBUS #1 (Moonstone title)
> BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #8 (DC title)
> MIGHTY AVENGERS #15
> AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE #14 (wha?????)
> AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #663 (I think that's the number; it's the Enforcers issue)
>

> And that leaves the following for next weekend:
>
>
> MAGDALENA*DAREDEVIL #1 (Image title)
> NEW AVENGERS #42
> MS. MARVEL #28
> NEW WARRIORS #13
> GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2
>
> In case anyone was wondering, that's why my reviews of comics are late certain weeks. I have to walk to my store (I can't ride the bus due to my social anxiety disorder) and it takes 40 minutes, so that's quite a walk every week! So I go every other week to make things easier.

I vary between weekly and biweekly but the routine is always the same: I order however I bought from the one I am least anticipating on top to the one I am most looking forward to on bottom. I can read the bottom one first (bottom two if it's a heavy week) but then it's least to most. The when I'm done I re-order the books so t hat the one I liked least is on top and the one I liked best is the bottom. Very rarely have the orders been the same.
