I hate getting journals in the mail.
I guess in this day and age, it probably doesn't happen as much as it used to. But I still somehow have two journals coming at regular intervals to my house.
Do I read these journals? No, of course not.
I'm sure I should. I should at least read all the abstracts, so I can keep abreast of major developments in my field. But I don't even do that. I toss it, feeling simultaneously guilty about both the waste of knowledge and the waste of paper. But what am I supposed to do? Save them? Make some empty promise that someday I'd read them, maybe while I'm on the toilet or something?
I do get regular clinical updates online and I do my CMEs and I work in a somewhat academic environment, so I tell myself that's good enough. I don't have to feel obligated to read Archives of PM&R cover to cover.
