Meme #4--Thursday 13

Thursday 13--#15
Thirteen magazines I browse at Border’s
1. Country Home
2. Cottage Living
3. Piecework
4. Cote Sud
5. Old House Interiors
6. Coastal Living
7. Chicago Wilderness
8. Midwest Living
9. Cote Ouest
10. Outdoor Photography
11. Popular Photography
12. Real Simple
13. Cloth, Paper, Scissors

And any others I can get my hands on. I have to confess, I take them upstairs to the café, buy some coffee and read them. Or rather, usually, I just look at the pictures. I generally do my more “serious” reading at home or on airplanes. I figure Border’s is the modern version of a library—I rent a chair and a magazine with the price of the coffee (and the 10,000 books I doubtless buy there). I feel guilty for not using the fine, small bookstore near my house but they don’t have a café. Border’s has become my haven from stress—no kids demanding meals or play-dates, no work duties. I can still be paged there so work or family can intrude but it is nonetheless my weekly treat. I keep interesting work hours so sometimes I’m there on a weekday with the homeless, college students, stay-at-home moms and unemployed even though I am none of the above.

Interesting magazines. I like Country Home. I love looking at beautiful homes and how they are decorated inside and out.

I'm not a TT participant (I came to visit your photo hunt) but I enjoyed your entry. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds very relaxing though i don't know the shop. I was once a magazine junkie but as I have to buy them it became expensive.
Have a good holiday.Angela

I just look at the piccies too. None of my business, but why do you sound as if you need at 'excuse' to escape to Borders? I seem to recall, in the long distant past, that mothers who work outside the home, effectively work longer hours than any other group of adults on the planet.
Best wishes

oh my gosh I so read almost all those same magazines when we go to the bookstore. We go usually as a family and sit and drink coffee an dd read books. It's grand. I'm glad to know you do that too!
