Highlights of Reader’s Digest June 2019, issue:
Sometime last year, when the decision was made to give Reader’s Digest a makeover, the aim was to give this timeless magazine a cleaner and bolder look, but steer clear of reinventing the wheel. To achieve this, our global designers fell back on a device from the 1950s—a frame that now surrounds each of our sections and departments—to create a style that “felt intelligent and approachable”, marrying our legacy charm with modern-day minimalism.
Our stories and columns follow suit. While all-time favourites—humour, Quotable Quotes, Drama in Real Life and Bonus Read—continue, fresh ones abound: Inspired by the extremely popular classic RD column, ‘I Am Joe’s Body’ comes a new series ‘I Am The Food On Your Plate’; ‘Memory Room’ captures heart-warming nostalgia on spaces; the richer, younger and more varied Culturescape offers the best in books, arts and entertainment and The Genius Section is a must-read for all ages.
Highlights of Reader’s Digest February 2016, issue: Happiness Begins with Humour Of Love and Money It’s February and while the world celebrates love (we do too), we also know it’s still the beginning of the year and we’re all still hanging on to our resolutions. It’s the best time to make a sound financial plan, rather than scrambling at the end of the year to put together investments. But since there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, our cover story lays down the basics and helps you build on these. But because money can’t buy everything, we have a heart-warming tale of what our loved ones really want from us. In our other special stories: Shafqat Amanat Ali on what he’d do if he ruled the world, an interview with Michael Caine, how to get lucky, and whether the new black money law really will work. Plus, a look into The Making of a Jihadist and why a healthy young man did what he did. There’s also something for us to sleep over: a special report on sleep, how we, in India, are not getting enough of it, and how we can get our full eight hours. Travel down Australia’s Great Ocean Road, and round it off with a story of a film-maker who has lived well beyond his years, with the support and love of his family. Yes, love does make the world go around. So don’t miss our Valentine’s Day special: To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This...
