Catching up

20th February 2004

For the past few years, I’ve read almost no books because I subscribe to so many magazines. Right now, I’m getting:

Real Simple

O, the Oprah Magazine

Martha Stewart Living

Esquire

Vogue

Lucky

Dwell

The New Yorker

The Smithsonian

Time

Jason Kottke recently embarked on a campaign to read more magazines, and he got a surprisingly long list of
suggestions from his readers. Look it over and see what appeals to you. Scanning it, I realized it’s been way too long since I’ve picked up copies of Giant Robot, Readymade, or The Believer. Then again, I’ve been meaning to finish Cry, the Beloved Country, The Lost Contient, and Midnight’s Children for quite a while too. I could use a few weeks on the beach.
