News & magazines….in the modern day & age

Sometimes there is nothing better than reading a newspaper, unless you live in Country Town of course!!!

Before moving to Country Town I lived overseas and at least there we managed to get the Weekend Australian, Courier-Mail and Daily Telegraph on a Saturday afternoon, as in the same day they came out in Australia.  We even got magazines on the same day they went on sale in Australia.

As for Country Town…..yeah not likely.  The Saturday paper used to arrive on Saturday and the Sunday paper on Monday.  But a few weeks ago the Sunday paper was cancelled, as in it doesn’t even get to Country Town, or the next town any more.  All because the Greyhound buses have changed timetables.  So now the Saturday paper gets in on Sunday and the Sunday paper doesn’t arrive at all.

As for magazines, well the TV Week, New Idea, Woman’s Day etc that went on sale in the rest of Australia last Monday finally made it to Country Town today…yes today, 7 days later.

I did get the Sunday paper and enjoy a relaxing 45 minutes on a Monday afternoon with a cup of tea or a soy latte while reading it, now I get the Saturday paper and do the same.

I buy the odd magazine, but thank God for the iPad so that I can get a magazine the day it comes out and a lot cheaper.
