I am jealous of people who can retain a lot of information because I am not that kind of person. I want to keep up with the news, but I find most of it dry and boring. A pal of mind recommended that I check out THE WEEK magazine. It has saved me. THE WEEK picks up articles from various newspapers and compresses it so it’s easy to read and understand. Yes, it’s “Cliff Notes” for adults. I love it. Plus it’s super cheap–like $1/per mag if you subscribe.
