Reading generally is not an activity one associated with Magazines but it really depends on the kind of Magazines we are talking about. [Wink, Wink!] Magazines universally are a great way of grabbing information on various subjects and in quick consumable formats. But with the advent of Google and Social Media platforms one may not find themselves picking too many of these. Worst is that reading magazines focused on a topic of your interest is a great way to unwind and yet learn more regarding an area of your interest. Well, no worries because now you can read all of them online and that too at a fraction of the overall cost. You can also an Amazon Gift card.
Since childhood, I have always been an automobile enthusiast. Without access to any high-end gadgets or internet at thattime, the best way to stay connected with that world was via Magazines.
I used to save my pocket money those days just to get my hands over the last issue of AutoIndia (Rs.30 those days). Sometimes, I would save enough to even buy a Champak or Tinkle.
For a 10yr old in the 90s that was a lot of money being spent on magazines. But it brought me immense joys. I even ended up cutting my favourite cars out and sticking them in my scrapbook. Even dreamed of designing my own car someday!
That was the power of magazines!
During college days, the love of Auto India was replaced by Digit & Chip computer magazines. And this was followed by the ‘Entrepreneur’ magazine as I started working and dreaming of starting my own company.
The money spent on these magazines always helped me learn more and still kept the process fun.
With the advent of gadgets and ebooks, one hardly buys physical books these days let-alone magazines. Also, magazines are getting more and more expensive these days due to higher publishing & distribution cost. So I started looking out for ways that I could still keep reading magazines without losing a lot of money on individual subscriptions.
Online magazine subscriptions have been around for a while now but I was looking for an option that does not limited access and is cheaper to buy. And I am glad I found it with Magzter Gold.
