WWII History (Magazine)

WWII History Magazine

I find these magazines interesting for learning about topics that are not always covered in WWII books. Sometimes they are about one particular ship, tank, battle etc. The magazine also reviews WWII related video games which I find interesting also. I would recommend these magazines if you enjoy reading about WWII history.

Runner's World

There I was in the lounge waiting for my car's oil-change and needing something to kill time. Runner's World, the top magazine on the end table, had the same eye-catching headline found on lots of magazines: "Lose 10 Pounds". So naturally I picked it up (who doesn't want to lose 10 pounds?). I never did find the article about losing weight, but I did happen across a wonderful article about two little people, one 3 ft 9 inch and the other 4 ft 4 inch, who qualified for the 2013 Boston Marathon. As a short person who does some road races, I was awestruck reading about their drive and accomplishments. But as often happens in waiting rooms, I didn't have quite enough time to finish the article. Thank goodness the library had a copy of the issue I was reading and I was able to finish the article. Next time you can't finish a current year's magazine article in a waiting room, come to the library, chances are you'll find it here. Check our Catalog

Backyard Poultry

Backyard Poultry

Are you interested in raising chickens in an urban setting?  Then this is the publication for you!  Each edition contains feature articles, as well as regular articles on breed selection, housing, health and nutrition, historic and rare breeds and other topics of interest for promoting the raising of small-scale poultry.  The current issue has a good article entitled, "Are Chickens in your Future?".  After visiting the local Tractor Supply Store last week and seeing all the cute baby chicks, I have to admit it was tempting to get into this fun hobby.  But after reading the article, which describes the joys and the pitfalls, I decided that this is something for future interest.  But don't let that stop you- chickens are the new cool pets!     Check our catalog.

The Hollywood Reporter

Browsing The Hollywood Reporter this week I learned that Whitney Houston’s label, Sony Music, has earned about $1.7 million from single sales since her untimely death;  that Stephen Stills flunked his audition for The Monkees and William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman recently earned stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, I learned one of the titles considered for Lost was Nowhere, that Everybody Loves Raymond could have been called What’s With Raymond? and that Friends was almost titled Across the Hall. I know, some people would call that trivia, but I love learning the backstories for my favorite movies and television shows. What I find most compelling about The Hollywood Reporter is the meaty, in-depth stories it runs each week about Hollywood’s power brokers.  It’s one of the only magazines that I consistently read cover-to-cover.

Family Tree Magazine

This is a good magazine!  There is a lot of solid information here for the newbie to genealogy and enough depth in the articles for those that already have some experience in this addictive hobby.  This magazine has articles for a wide range of researchers, as well as interesting stories and helpful hints for your ancestor quest.  It is also web oriented and has important search tips for online research.  I find something interesting in every issue.  If you're at all interested in genealogy this is a good place to start- but watch out you may get hooked!

Midwest Living July/August 2011 (magazine)

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Following a 125-mile route spanning Lake Michigan’s southwest coastline from Saugatuck to New Buffalo, this month’s Midwest Living highlights some of the best our state has to offer when it comes to farm markets, wineries and bakeries. While I didn’t grow up along the lake, I grew up in Grand Rapids which was close enough to make frequent trips out to Grand Haven with my family. Looking at the photos in this issue makes me homesick. They’ve got a gorgeous photo of a sunset on the pier in South Haven and if I looked quickly I would have thought was the pier in Grand Haven. I’m going to have to try the recipes for Serrano Chile Butter, Gorgonzola-Bacon Butter and Lemon-Parsley Butter. Even the sweet corn ice cream looks delicious.

Yoga Journal (Magazine)

Sunday, February 24, 2008

I'm not normally an avid magazine reader but lately I have been enjoying reading Yoga Journal. In the February 2008 issue, there is a list of "10 tools for creating your happiest life". And who couldn't use some tips on this?

Before the list, there is a brief explanation of the list and why you might need it. Beginning with:

"There are times when you know just what to do, and life seems to rise up and support you and your ideas. And then there are times when it is all a little murky, and you might feel a bit lost..."

Even if you're not into yoga, you may be able to appreciate this list and some of the other suggestions in other issues of YJ.

If you are a yoga lover (or new to yoga), there are always great tips for getting more out of your yoga practice.
