Yes, the night is still young

Where to Buy (Not too) Old Magazines

If you are like me, eager to read magazines such as Newsweek, Business Week, or Time, yet hardly able to choose which you really want to read, because you simply just want to read them all, then you might have a not-enough-time-to-read problem or not-enough-budget-to-buy-them-all problem.

For the second problem, looks like I have found the solutions; buy used magazines. They are not too old, ranging from two weeks old until several months old, with 90% condition.

The price? it’s a bargain, only 5000IDR, or 0.6USD each. With 50.000IDR I used to only able to read two editions, but now I can read up to ten editions.

The place? The one I know is a bookstore at Pasar Festival Kuningan, Jalan Rasuna Said Jakarta, that specialized in selling used book and magazine, they have quite a lot stocks, of magazines, travelling books, journals like national geography, novels and many other kind of book. The bookstore is on level 2 of the Pasar Festival Building, the same level with the food court.

  4. Yes Kristiane you should 🙂 there must be some place in the State similar to the our place here. In the one I mention above, the location is in the middle of the city, and they have a quiet large space. I wonder that selling used magazine turns out able to afford such space.
