This year, I shan't be setting a reading list as it has been proven to have no influence on what I actually want to read when I next go to my bookshelf. Nor will I set a target of books to read. Instead, I hope to read The Economist more often, and perhaps even branch out into Wired, National Geographic, and NewSci at least occasionally. I shall also shamelessly enjoy a lot of epic fantasy and science fiction to balance out the amazingly cool and cerebral volumes I received for Christmas.

Magazine count:
National Geographic – February, March, April, May, July, August, stopped keeping track
The Economist – err, a bit of one
NewSci – 2
Empire – failed to keep track
