I’m one of a dying breed. I’m a subscriber of print magazines. They’re cheaper per issue than at the store and I don’t have to hope that the latest issue is in stock. I’m also the type of person that likes the feel of paper in her hands. A challenge is presenting itself with the rise of electronic tablets (iPad, Galaxy, Kindle Fire, Nook, etc.). People like me, who like to carry reading material with them, are enticed by only having to carry the device and not numerous pieces of literature with them. No more magazines stacking up in the house. No more waiting for the mail carrier to deliver that precious issue. It’s right there instantly as soon as the company releases it. Whenever I get a tablet-how have I gone this long without one?-I will be moving to digital subscriptions.
Which side are you on? Are you a traditionalist that will want the real thing? Or, have you been itching to move to digital format?
