Remember when Netflix and Tumblr didn’t exist and you read like 10 books a week? Good times.

All that and about 30 magazines.  None from the racks by the checkout counters.

Spent so much more of my income – definitely a higher percentage of my income – on books and magazines than hardly anyone spends on their phone and data plans.  (I still read about as much as I ever did, it’s just all on Kindle, Audible, Feedly or Newsbur apps.  And of course it’s pretty much infinitely easier to write and be read!)
