Readings for December 2013

We moved this month.


  • Scientific American July 2013 - Michael D. Lemonick's report on progress in the study of the atmospheres of exoplanets is very fascinating. It is amazing what can be inferred from such a distance.
  • Tin House 57 - Lawrence Osborne's "Camino Real" starts off in the model of the classic narrative of a man down on his luck getting in over his head, but it takes a sideways turn which makes for a good finish.

Year-end notes

In 2013 I read:

  • 31 magazines
  • 17 books
  • 10,085 pages
  • or about 28 pages per day

In comparison with last year's numbers, I need to get back into better reading habits.
