More Magazines, Please

Remember the days when you could enjoy a magazine in the waiting room at the dentist or look at the latest centerfold while under the dryer at a hair salon? Life was good back then. As someone who grew up with braces and thick hair, I am no stranger to either scenario. Some of my fondest memories consisted of flipping through magazines. While magazines still exist, the likelihood of seeing a stack of them in a woven basket is not as common as it once was.

Having access to a good read in a public place was always nice, but having access to a good read at home was arguably even better. I remember being in middle school and having my Godfather subscribe me to multiple magazines so I could stay up to date on topics like fashion, current events, and wellness. Not only did I have more time to digest what I was reading since I was at home, I was also able to go back and re-read because these magazines belonged to me. I kept up with these subscriptions all the way through high school, then technology got its hands on me, and my smartphone became my new source of reading. Using a handheld device is very convenient, but traditional reading options are still out there.
