I LOVE National Geographic and for the past year I had a subscription until I realized I need space to keep magazines in my tiny home and I have no more space to designate to magazines. Josh enjoys the magazine as well and I miss it. Haha…do you think it’s because I used to work in Periodicals at HPU? I saw magazines and journals almost every day for five years, I guess I’m having withdrawals on information overload.

If the Kindle was in color-I’d get it on Josh’s Kindle, but it’s black and white. If I had an iPad 2 or when I get one…I’m going to get all my magazines on that!! 🙂 It will save me space for sure.
When I used to work at the library, we donated our National Geographic back issues to the Friends of the Library Book Sale which supports Hawaii State Public Libraries. I never knew how popular they were until I went to one of these book sales and saw people all over the shelves grabbing very old issues of National Geographic.

Wow and it’s only 39.86? Check out the space saver on that?
I guess my problem then is to wait to get an ipad or order it now and read it on my laptop, which is not bad since it’s only $15.00 for a year subscription. We’ll see…
