Weekend Reading

I rarely buy or read online, but I purchased this magazine the other day, I was having a look to all the magazines (in English and in Spanish) at the book store and you know what they all had in common (¿?) Yes, a bunch of ads. Ads on the first 60(?!) pages, I mean, it was ad after ad after ad. I was flipping through the pages to finally find an article. Boring stuff, yet different front printed magazines, online magazines can be much easier to catch up with due to they're updated every time and so you can find it on twitter, instagram, facebook, etc. Anyhow, I loved this one so much (the cover just caught my eye), it has so many beautiful things to get inspired by, and many things to read and it doesn't have that many ads at all. SCORE! Now, every time I have some time off, I flip through its pages and it kinds of feels relaxing and perhaps a bit of therapeutic. Maybe, I can buy a new one some day again. Which one do you prefer, online or print magazines?

Some links for you to read. . .

Paris Sketchbook

No idea when my love affair with Paris started but since a couple of years I've been a loyal lover of that beautiful place and because of it, I've been also a serious collector of Paris books, no matter what kind of book it is, what it is about, if it does have the Paris word on its cover or the story took place in Paris, then let me tell you I wouldn't even think twice in purchasing it, that's how I ended up getting this book on my hands, it's the latest addition to my smallish collection. I'm a huge fan of illustrations as well, and these ones from Jason Brooks are amazing.
