Not being a collector like Martin here, therefore, I have not gone around collecting Wisden's. I do have a complete set of the Wisden anthologies though which are easier to read though, i daresay, I haven't read even half of each
This is what I always read in a Wisden, I imagine most would do something similar.
Notes by the Editor, and all the features; the Five Cricketers of the Year.
Tour and Test reports
Surrey and Kent match reports (home games, I don't tend to seek out the away fixtures)
Cricket in the news, or whatever it's called
I can't remember the last time I read the Laws; and it would take a long time to read all the county and ODI reports. I do tend to check the Index of Unusual Occurrences though, and go to the matches mentioned.
