How do you handle reading? Keeping up to date with journals, articles sent by peers, etc?
I'm a phd student and I have TONS of reading that needs to be done - most items are general background material in my field with which I need to be familiar, the latest research coming out or stuff that I need to absorb if I want to pass my comps. (this is all on TOP of reading that must be done related to certain specific research projects or classes.)
Its hard enough (ok, impossible) to find the TIME for all this reading, but where do you keep it on your lists? Its not really a someday/maybe - I can't do it 10 years from now. And each item is just 1 action, usually more than 2 minutes but often much longer (ie Read entire book - title). Right now I have a project called READING and I put each article, book, etc that I find under there, but I'm not sure that is the right way to handle this material. What do you do?
