It probably didn't make it... It go stuck either in Customs, at PR's General Post Office, or at any of the USVI's post offices' twilight zone... Or worse, no shipment to "protectorates/ US Territories"...

I'm thinking of subscribing to more magazines, and the ones I looked at only offer digital subscriptions on their website. Island Periodicals finally sold their warehouse behind the hospital (Kidney Center is now there), so unless somebody else wants to get into the dying print periodical business, we won't have newsstand magazines.

Less landfill clutter is how I look at it.

I miss real paperbacks (from Dockside Bookstore in particular) I have a kindle now but it is just not the same.
If I am going to subcribe to a magazine, I want a real one to hold in my hands and enjoy. Sorry but guess I am just old school when it comes to books and magazines. This new technology stuff, not to mention their exceedingly high prices for new books, just does not
do it for me. The 'free stuff' is sometimes okay. Usually not. I hate typos and bad editing. Quite distracting.

Dailycheapreads. Has free and discounted books. Even name brand authors. A lot of the free books are good too. But I still love real books.
