My Media Diet: No Rest for the Weary

The brilliant and indefatigable Arun Rajagopal requested that I share my media consumption habits.

Books
I read mostly nonfiction — focusing on business and marketing, history and current events, self-help and philosophy –, but I’ve been trying to break out of that by reading a little more fiction. To that end, I read The Sea Wolf by Jack London last month. I just finished The Christian Husband 2 nights ago. Currently I’m making my way through the excellent *Personality Not Included, for which I will write at least one review when I finish, and Hitler 1936-1945 by Ian Kershaw.

News
I admit it. Although I love newsprint for reasons David ReichBob Glaza and Tangerine Toad all expressed at one point or another, I still get most of my news online. I regularly check USAToday.comMSNBC.comWorldNetDaily (plus its print monthly, Whistleblower), and various news aggregation websites such as The Drudge Report and Scott Baradell’s Spin Thicket, both of which often take me to news stories on websites I would not have otherwise found. I also pick up whatever is lying around here in the office. There is usually a Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Dallas Morning News, and a USA Today around here somewhere.

Who’s Next?
Now I’m going to look to the younger generation to see what our future holds. I’m interested in what media Nathan SnellRyan KarpalesThe Great Haw, and Mario Vellandi are consuming. And because I need some help in speaking and writing (and because I’ve found their contributions very helpful), I also want to hear from Lisa Braithwaite and Kristin Gorski.

Step up to the plate. Time to share. 🙂
