I made a big reading goal this year. Fifty books. Iâ€™d finish fifty books by the end of 2014.
I was on track for the first months of the year, but then came back-to-back weeks of pushing-to-the-finish-line on several projects and I stopped reading altogether. Reading begets reading in my case, and even three weeks of not reading regularly will derail me firmly out of sync.
Now itâ€™s several months later, and in firmly predictable fashion, Iâ€™m aching to return to regular reading. I just finished S-L-O-W-L-Y making my way through The Prisoner of Azkaban, but mostly Iâ€™ve been off-track with books.
Books aside, I have been intermittently popping in on my favorite websites, periodicals, and blogs. Here are a few of my current favorites.
Cup of Jo (Blog)
Somehow Joanna Goddard curates the best mix of interesting, intriguing, and useable information. She posts a LOT, but it works.
Modern Mrs. Darcy (Blog)
Anne Bogel talks books, life, and personality quirkiness, a still-light ensemble which evades triviality. Incidentally, she hosts the “What I’m Reading” link up of which this post is a part.
Vanity Fair (Monthly Periodical)
Full of fantastic stories and some of my favorite short-form non-fiction. Cosmo and Glamour it emphatically is not.
Relevant (Blog & Monthly Periodical)
Conversations on faith, culture, and intentional living. It doesn’t hide from the taboo and approaches topics openly and with generosity. Good thought fodder here.
Saveur (Monthly Periodical)
Planted firmly at the intersection of food and culture, Saveur serves up recipes and travel bits as well. Great reading for lovers of food, food writing, and the world.
What’s been your favorite short-form reading of late?

Appreciate your actually being indeed helpful and also for making a choice on this kind of essential themes most people are really desirous to be informed on. Our honest regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.
