7/23/11 – I just read that Borders is closing their 400 stores, and 11,000 employees will be out of work … and the reason they named, is ebook! It’s unbelievable to me that people don’t want to hold a newspaper, book or magazine in their hands to read … just the feel and the look of the paper in my hand are wonderful. I love reading the newspaper in the morning, even though it’s the Review-Journal (miss the LA Times) … I always look forward to reading the Sunday paper and watching CBS Sunday Morning … it’s my Sunday ritual. I love when I my receive my magazines in the mail … Vanity Fair(gorgeous magazine, articles too long) People (I know, it’s cheesy, but I love it) and TV Guide … I would get Time too, but they raised the price much too high. My dad sold newspapers/magazines on the corner of Randolph/Canal in front of Union Station for 50 years … and never missed a day … he also delivered proofs for the Sun-Times … so newspapers are important in my life. I can’t imagine what’s going to happen with so many publishing houses going under, it’s horrible.
THINGS I LOVE,…AND THAT PISS ME OFF
