Magazines I Would Love to Read

The only magazine I subscribe to is a religious one for church. I wasn’t going to respond to Weekly Geeks this week because I didn’t have anything to add. But reading the other posts has reminded me of what I’d like to read.

The New Yorker

The Bluestockings discussion of The New Yorker reminded me that I loved reading it the year I had a subscription. Unfortunately, it takes me more than a week to read it and it comes every week. At the end of a one-year subscription, I still had 6 months to read. Maybe I’ll give it a try again.

The Atlantic

I’ve never read The Atlantic regularly, but someone sent me a link to the article I talked about the other day and I found the entire magazine online! I’d love to read this. There are some good articles.

Foreign Affairs

I read Foreign Affairs regularly for a year while in college (5 years ago). I’m embarrassed to say that while I minored in “International Studies” I am very out of the loop these days in terms of political happenings. Eva reminded me of this magazine. I should read it; much of the magazine in online and it is important.

So, I’m going to try to read some of these things. Like I said, I used to. What’s happened to me? Oh, right: I quit work and had a baby. He’s now teething and learning to crawl. I guess that takes my time from me, and I wouldn’t change that for the world.

  1. I was nanny to my baby niece for a year, so I totally understand how babies cut into your reading time! I’m sure if I had my own, I’d barely get any reading done: as it was, I did it all in my off time. 😀 How old’s your son?

  2. I have the same problem with my own New Yorker subscription. I virtually never finish them in a week. For a while there I too dropped my subscription but after a few weeks are started going through withdrawal. I find I deal with how far behind I am with just not thinking about it. Otherwise I might flip into panic mode.

  3. @J.S. Peyton:

    I’m finding that most articles are online! If I consistently read some of them for a few weeks, I be able to justify buying a subscription again. I guess is the trick to not reading everything or not caring if your reading everything….
