This is my post for 5 Minutes for Books' monthy What's on Your Nightstand carnival.
I have spoken here about my magazine problem before. I get an offer I can't refuse and so I have to subscribe to the magazine. They arrive at my house and are promptly put into a nightstand drawer and sit there until I can't close the drawer any more. So begins the marathon of magazine reading at which point I decide that I subscribe to too many magazines and vow to let the subscriptions run out. Then the offers come in the mail and the viscous cycle continues.
Anyway, the drawer is full once more so I took the mags all out to put them in chronological order because not only do I hoard them, I am a little OCD about reading them in the order in which they are received. At the time of this post, I have 24 various mags longing to be read. The oldest one is from July 09 and the newest one came in the mail yesterday.
In no particular order there are:
- Good Housekeeping
- Ladies Home Journal
- Woman's Day
- National Geographic
