The Last Page

Even though I am continually falling behind on my magazines, the reading continues.  What I realized a few weeks ago, is that I read some pretty interesting stuff.  Which isn’t to say that I’m some sort of book-purist who avoids total crap (just wait until you see what pops up next round).  But more often than not, when I turn the last page, I do so knowing that I actually learned something.

That’s a really nice feeling.
