Getting ready for tomorrow
On the 16th of January I wrote a post about the things I have committed to this month. I promised to give an update at the end of the month. That’s tomorrow. I’ll roll in an update about books read and bought, too.
Today’s post is a little preparation. It’s Saturday evening and I want to post this too my personal blog because I want to post something and I have little to say. What I have noticed this month is that I have read a lot less than usual. In addition to my book reading, I usually get through the TLS, Private Eye, and the LRB.
I also subscribe to print versions of Red Pepper and Tribune. At the moment, my in-tray is piling up with back issues of all of those. Not good. It makes me unhappy. Or stressed. One of the two. I hate skipping articles, essays, or reviews in these magazines because it gives me a bad case of FOMO. I really do fear I shall miss something important if I don’t read everything. Interesting, at least. Or useful. Not healthy.
After taking stick of what this month has given me — or taken from me in the case of reading — I will make some resolutions for February. I don’t know yet myself what I’m going to decide. That will have to wait until I’m typing tomorrow.
And on that note … until tomorrow.
