on why I’m cancelling my subscription to the New Yorker

It seemed like a good idea at the time, to get the subscription, a half-priced, educator’s rate.

The first one arrived the following month. But then another joined it only a week later, barely enough time for me to have read through the comics interspersed in each issue. And then, mere days later, there were triplets. It was only then that I realized that they send them every week.

They stack up on the nightstand and taunt me, reminding me, four times as often as Harper’s, how little time I spend reading, and how little I’m able to manage my time in the first place.
