I enjoy periodicals. Rarely do I read them all the way through. But I'll usually spend five minutes flipping through one when it comes in, and mark for the later the articles I want to read more in depth (or sometimes tear them out and send them to others).
One of the perks of the VP job has been lots of periodicals that are either sent my way for free or paid for out of some mysterious account. As I transition out of the job and lose the mysterious account, I'm going to have to decide which ones I'll pony up for. Here's the current line-up that comes across my desk (in no particular order):
The Christian Century
Books and Culture
Chronicle of Higher Education
New York Review of Books
Any feedback on which one you think should be the keepers?
