I've been thinking about trying to re-read my collection (26 boxes worth, plus a bookshelf or two of trades) chronologically.
On the one hand, this has a certain appeal. I'd see the evolution of artists and artistry; I'd experience the proper chronology between Amazing/Spectacular/Marvel Team-Up or Batman/Detective; I'd get to re-experience whole months of my childhood; I'd gain a historical perspective that I currently lack; and I'd re-read every book in my collection (over a period of several years, I'd assume).
On the other hand, it seems hideously difficult. First, there's the task of figuring out what I actually own; then, using Mike's Amazing or GCBD to organize it by year and by month; and finally, there's the daunting task of reading one story each from 12 different Essentials and Showcase Presents volumes, repeatedly shuffling between them. And then, re-sorting them all alphabetically at the end... I can't imagine a way of doing this that wouldn't take uncountable hours of work.
What are your thoughts?
