Forget books. I manage to sneak in one every two weeks but the majority of my time is spent trying to keep up with my magazine reading. Anyone else have this issue? It's not a matter of wasting my time reading material I'm not interested in. I truly want to read all the magazines I subscribe to. It's just there's so many of them. In no particular order, I subscribe to:
- The New Yorker
- Runner's World
- Writer's Digest
- Poets & Writers
- ASJA (American Society of Journalists & Authors) newsletter
- Toastmasters International magazine
- Log Home World
- Cooking Light
- Travel & Leisure
- Magazines I publish in that are sent to me and I feel somewhat obligated/interested in to read
Every magazine has its place. By far, my favorite magazine to receive is Runner's World and I rip through it the day it arrives, reading everything. Newsweek is read at breakfast over the course of a week. New Yorker articles are read at night in bed before sleep. Cooking Light, Log Home World, and Travel & Leisure are more skimmed than read. The other magazines get carried around in my bag, to be read in snatches between appointments or while waiting to meet someone OR in bed a night once The New Yorker is finished.
Right now, I'm backlogged on Writer's Digest magazines having not read the last two issues. This is giving me heart palpitations but I'll catch up. I always do.
