New York Mag. surveys five NYers on what they read--from the Dr. Zizmor ads on the train to Plato's Republic. What have I read today? Lots 'o email; Antony & Cleopatra waiting for the doctor; trashy doctor's office mags waiting for test results at the doc's; skimmed the NYT waiting for my computer to be fixed.
I'm noticing a "waiting" and "reading" connection both in my habits and in a significant amount of the people in the NY magazine article. Reading is definitely a great use of the waiting time--but I'm nostalgic for when I scheduled in blocks of time to read.
