All roads lead to Rome!! Or as you might have guessed, in my case they usually lead to a bookstore.
(Mr B, stop reading now) I used to spend far to much of my pay cheque at the magazine stand. Once I even bought a magazine I already had at home :D. True story, has that ever happened to you? When we sold our house, I loaded up my car with over 300 magazines, headed to my local library and reluctantly made a donation. While I do miss the odd one, I think it was the only way to break the addiction. Yes, I’ll call it that:
It’s all so very tempting at Chapters Book Store on Whyte Avenue. If you don’t see the magazine you’re looking for here, it’s probably not available.
Admittedly, old habits are hard to break. I thought this article at Pick The Brain offered some good advice, these two stood out:
- replace lost needs – writing Boomdeeadda has really filled the void
- write it down – thanks again WordPress
What’s great about this day is, I resisted the urge to bring a magazine home and simply enjoyed the day for what it had to offer. I got outdoors for fresh air, got some needed exercise, admired the neighbourhood and treated myself to a coffee.
