Below are the current books/magazines on my husband’s nightstand.
Several of the items are magazines. My father bequeathed to my husband all of his Analog magazines dating from when the publication first began until he stopped his subscription sometime in the 1990’s.
The other magazine is Lapham’s Quarterly, an amazing magazine if you love knowledge for knowledge’s sake. Each volume covers only one topic, but that topic is covered in depth from multiple disciplines across the length of human civilization. So you could have Virgil next to Hildegard of Bingen next to Karl Marx.
