I have too much stuff to read. I currently have subscriptions to the following:
- The Wall Street Journal (Daily)
- IEEE Spectrum (Monthly)
- IEEE Controls Magazine (Quarterly)
- Money Magazine (Monthly)
- National Geographic (Monthly)
- Smart Money (Monthly)
- Wired (Monthly)
- AIST Iron and Steel Technology (Monthly)
- This Old House Magazine (Monthly)
This is more than I can keep up with. When I was traveling all of the time it was different, I had time to kill on flights, between flights, etc. That is not the case now. Some of these I receive as part of a professional membership (IEEE, AIST). I would not have subscribed to Wired but received it for free for buying stuff at Amazon (It is an excellent mag, don’t get me wrong). I don’t read the National Geographic much, I just feel like it is a classic American publication and want to support it.
I just received a notification from American Airlines that some of my miles would be expiring and that I could use miles for magazine subscriptions and it would make my account current (how convenient is that). So, having no choice, I used miles to subscribe to The Economist, an absolutely outstanding (as I have noted here before) weekly publication. There is no way I am going to be able to keep up with it.
