Imported Magazines

Borders, Borders, Borders, why do you treat my heart so bad?

I had to buy a new monthly bus ticket today, since the bus from uni was 20mins late I would not make it back to my normal bus in time after going up to central station to get a ticket so I decided to get the next bus and spend some time enjoying the city.

First stop was Borders mmm love that shop. Except I normally walk out empty handed because I just have to love reading US magazines like Real Simple but with a cover price of AU$13.95 (~US$10.69) and increasing, more often then not I only allow myself a flick. I emailed Real Simple today though to see about international subs as the site only has info for USA and Canada. I would love to get RS in the mail each month, sigh. I hope they do Int’l subs.

I also saw some cool books that I like the look of which I have added to my text list on the right some though I did not scribble down the name of or they are not yet on USA Amazon. This book in particular is one I can’t wait to get my hands on – Falling Cloudberries. It is one of those cook books where every recipe looked like something that everyone in the house would eat. I like those sort of cook books – cook books for real life.

On the way up to central station I went via Queens Plaza, not long now till it will be finished then I can do some serious window shopping, from what I could see it looks like it will be a visual delight. Opening date is said to be May 24th. sweet.

  1. Nothing like a good cook book! I love “Cooking – A commonsense guide” by Family Circle. It has all the favourites!

    An excursion would be good!! I work in the city everyday, but I try not to venture too far from the office – too busy and too expensive.
