Happiness Is...a New Magazine!
November 01, 2012
After 79 years in print, Newsweek is going all-digital in 2013. That’s probably not too much of a shock to most people, given that weekly news magazines simply can’t stay as current as their digital media counterparts. The print magazine market as a whole is volatile, and it has been for years. But the magazine is not dead yet!
I don’t know about you, but there’s just something about a lightweight, comfy handful of bright glossy pages that makes me happy. And there’s a new one every month! From parenting tips to decorating ideas, from learning which calendar app works best to finding the perfect piecrust recipe (Martha promises this in the November Martha Stewart Living), magazines are great! I learn a lot from them, and I find them very relaxing, too.
Did you know that the Library has an impressive variety of magazines, just waiting for you to browse through or check out? You can check out any of the back issues at your local branch. Below are some of my favorites. Drop by your local branch, and I’m sure you’ll discover a magazine you’ll enjoy, and for free!
Great for foodies and people with de-cluttering obsessions, this magazine’s motto is "Life Made Easier." Who couldn’t use some help with that? It’s also great for fashion and decorating ideas.
This Disney publication is brilliant for finding rainy-day (or any day!) creative crafts to do with kids. You’ll also find recipes that your child might really try.
Well, the cover of the November issue features a glorious chocolate mousse cake...need I say more? Freshness and flavor reign in this magazine that celebrates high-quality food.
What I love about Parenting is that, as your children grow, the magazine grows, since it’s available in two different editions: "Early Years" and "School Years." Thoughtful articles and real advice from real parents.
This is not Kountry, this is Modern Farm (urban & rural)! I appreciate the decorating tips that combine coziness and sophistication. The recipes are great, too!
