    Throughout the UK and Ireland you will still find newsagents, small storefront businesses that are part newsstand, part convenience store. They usually have a good selection of newspapers and magazines, a small of assortment of books, snacks (candy, crisps, packaged sandwiches, ice cream, etc), and soft drinks/juices. Even the smallest of villages usually has a newsagent, and they seem to do a thriving business.

    I use to spend a LOT of money each week on newspapers/magazines. I remember when the U.K papers cost 3 bucks over here

    I like books in hand but I wonder how many trees are saved from using E books.

    A completely appropriate and worthy musing Oz.

    Reading your post makes me ponder too if the reason I feel the magick in books is because of the magick that remains in the paper from the trees they used to be.

    I like a book. I have read e books when sone were out of print. Reading on a computer or tablet is just not enjoyable for me.
