Friday always seems like such a long day. So I’m sticking with my frivolous Friday to talk about magazines, which I touched on earlier this month.
We subscribe to many different types of magazines, but our budget can’t accommodate a subscription to everything you’d find on the newsstand. So we accept donations of magazines. We have several patrons who regularly give us the issues of magazines they subscribe to so that our patrons can enjoy them also. Reduce, reuse, recycle. But what if you could have a magazine subscription that changed with every whim you had?
Time Inc. is going to change the way the world reads, I think. In the fall, they are launching something called Maghound, which will allow readers to pay a flat fee each month and select the magazines they would like to receive, even changing to different magazines each month, if they wish. You could read according to the season, or to your interests. Or maybe you just feel like a crazy magazine one month, to see what you’re missing? Maghound promises that this will give readers much more freedom.
Here is a list of the magazines we subscribe to in our library. Click on the link if you want to read the online version or please feel free to drop by and pour through a few issues to take home.
