For The Love

As the new editor of Quarter Horse News, I think there is one thing you should know about me: I love magazines. There, I said it. The secret is out. I love magazines, and not just Quarter Horse News because I work here, or Strings magazine because playing the violin is one of my hobbies. No, I love magazines. All magazines. You could hand me a magazine on a subject about which I know nothing – such as underwater basket weaving – and I would read it. My nightstand is cluttered with a towering stack of books and magazines. And if you ever want to get rid of me for a few hours, just drop me off in front of the magazine racks at Barnes & Noble. If it’s a Barnes & Noble that has a coffee and snack bar, you might lose me for days. Yes, I love magazines.
