FREE Magazines

I love to read.

I'll read anything I can get my hands on really.

In addition to my 'book love'.  I also have a pretty healthy magazine obsession.  I say it's healthy because my love of magazines hasn't put me in the poor house (yet), my kids haven't gone hungry because of it and I don't hide them around the house.

You know how sometimes you stumble upon something when you were looking at something else on the internet.  Let me tell you how my latest discovery went down.

I woke up early this morning and decided to make some notes for a PTA meeting I'm having this afternoon but first I checked facebook (you do this too, I know you do).  I saw a posting from Read Across America asking me if I saw the live event this morning.

I didn't see it.  I didn't know about it so I googled NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY.  First of all, the NYCPL has the best website I have ever seen.  So much information and a great kids section with book lists and games.  I'm going to explore it further....probably in 6 months because OH MY GOSH...I am just not going to have time.

I then googled DENVER PUBLIC LIBRARY to see what I could see and low and behold, I found something amazing and I squealed with delight.

FREE Digital Magazine Subscriptions.

So then I went to my local library website which...frankly, is very much lacking and I searched all over the place (I'm an excellent researcher) and I found that MY library is offering them too!  And then I signed up and put in my library card number and 100 magazine were available to me with the touch of a mouse.

I'm going to have quit blogging and PTA to read all of these!  

What are you waiting for?  Go see if YOUR library has this offer.  Unless of course you don't like magazines.  Then go back to whatever it is you were doing.

OH and you don't have to have an eDevice to read them.  You can read them on your computer.


  1. What?! This is awesome! I love magazines and subscribe to about ten. This would save me some money for sure!
