The READ GREEN Initiative

I have learned to NOT subscribe to magazines.  It took me many years to learn this valuable lesson.  But after finally getting rid of 5 years(!) worth of Martha Stewart Living magazines this summer, I vowed that I was never going to subscribe to another magazine again.  I just don't have enough closet shelf space to store them.  And why store them to begin with?  I never looked at them again so why was I saving them?

Because they were beautiful and informative and inspiring, that's why.  Except, like I said, I never looked at them again.  That's just me - clinging to an imagined reality that will never be.

Which is why I was totally jazzed when I saw this web site, the READ GREEN Initiative.  They offer online versions of lots of magazines that you can either read online (duh) of download to read later.  It's the real magazine - only not with paper.  It's a "win/win" situation here folks!

Of course, they don't offer Martha Steward Living, but I did subscribe to Saveur.  And there are many, many more to choose from.  So, head on over and take a look.  Save a tree (and your sanity) today!

Sally, Interesting that you mention this because I was going through my magazines last week and deciding which ones to keep and which to chuck. I've subscribed to the New Yorker for ages, but now they offer everything plus audio/video stuff online so I'm quitting the physical copy at the end of this year. Thanks for the link! I'm going to check it out now.
