Turn a page. Trees will thank you.

My older sister Adde bought me a subscription to Country Living magazine for my birthday.
But I won't be receiving any magazines in the post.
They're all going to come to my computer!
How cool is that! I reckon this is such a great idea.
It saves trees and other resources. Doesn't produce waste. And I don't end up with piles and piles of magazines that I need to find a spot for. I like to keep all my magazines so I can refer back to them. I have quite a lot of magazines. But at the moment most of them are stored in our shed because I don't have room in the house for them. But even the stacks in the house now are growing. And I never look at the ones in the shed which kind of defeats the purpose of having them.

So yeah, I'm pretty happy about this new way of doing things.
I've received my first issue and it's really user friendly and easy to read online, you can zoom in and out on the page and when you click the arrow to turn the page it looks like a real page rolling over. You can look at a preview of the new issue of Elle Decor here to see how it works. (Click on the botton that says 'inside').

Thanks Adde for my birthday pressie, and thanks for introducing me to this great new way of doing things.

That is a pretty cool idea...considering I spend so much time on my computer already, I might as well read magazines on it!

I don't have any magazine subscriptions because I never seem to stay in one place long enough, I love collecting discarded magazines at the op shops though:)

good on you for doing this. I can see how practical it is and moral, but boy would I miss turning those pages.
