Publications

The diverse magazine and book world provides the ideal place for obtaining resources, inspiration, ideas, insights and planning information. What many may not know is that many of these magazines are available online for free or for half the price of the printed equivalent.

The airline industry is especially savvy with travel magazines through the free inflight magazine offerings which can be downloaded. I recommend procuring your magazines online, as not only will you save paper but you also save clutter as all the magazines can be accessible from your tablet or smart phone. That’s the wonder of the technology we have – so make the best of it! Even travel publications are providing online electronic versions of their world guides for download. Enjoy.


Key:

[P] = Print only publication (May have assorted articles online)
[O] = Online full electronic version of publication available (in addition to print)
