Where to Buy Issue Eight: Creation


{Atlantic News. Halifax, NS. Via}

This infinite network of knowledge and information we call the internet is fun and all but let’s be honest with ourselves, it’s mostly used for cheap distractions. Not to knock cheap distractions (we need that sort of thing sometimes, say after reading the headline news) but a lot more knowledge, insight and useful information is going to seep itself into the culturally-parched cracks of your mind by reading something in print. It’s the superior medium in that regard.

And what better place to pick up some print media than your local indie book store? Have you been in there lately? It’s great! They got that table in the middle with all the well-curated paperback books, that one you been meaning to check out when it came out as a ridiculously-priced $38 hardcover. Now it’s cheaper! And it’s probably discounted! And look at that person behind the counter, they’re really attractive and possibly single and you should strike up a conversation about something you might have in common like, hey, an interest in books, and look at that, you’ve got a phone number or at the very least, an new ally in the war against ignorance, which is a highly valuable thing. Oh, and while you’re on the healthy road to self-actualization, why don’t you check out the print edition of Annalemma Magazine. We’re in the periodicals section of the following fine stores…
