"Same here. I'm trying more to be open-minded to the electronic/screen reading culture, and I do a little reading on screen, but it's not the focused, absorbed and enjoyed experience that paper reading is. Same with YouTube, which I can…"

"Since I've already got high speed internet, and since I'm going to have it regardless of whether I read zines online, I consider reading them free. (I think our internet only costs $30/month, and that's split between four of us.) "
