I enjoyed looking at this designer Brenda Harvey’s list of Top 10 favorite things ever. I especially relate to the great joy of the tangibleness of print. There’s nothing like a new magazine on my bed or a snail mail letter from a loved one. As my dad would say, “It’s the nuts!” I guess in the 50’s that meant something like “it’s the coolest!”

2. Magazines, Books & Book Shelves
Print is definitely not dead to me. No matter how binding my relationship to my iphone and Mac, nothing with ever get me as excited as that time of the month when the new magazines flood the shelves of great stores like MagNation.  Even more spine tingling is when I arrive home on a Friday night to see the familiar plastic wrapped parcel of my airfreight Paris and UK Vogue, Apartmento and Paradis waiting to be devoured over the weekend. Our apartment resembles a small bookshop with piles of books and magazines on just about on every flat surface. I am still hunting for that perfect bookshelf and one day hope to have a whole room dedicated to a library.

    This is what our house would look like if I didn’t make frequent library donations.
