I finally got an issue of the Virginia Quarterly Review today. I subscribed a couple weeks back, but happened to be wandering through a shop that stocks it.
I don't read nearly enough magazines and I'm afraid that includes literary journals. There are a few that I keep up with for the purposes of staying on top of reviews, but that's about it.
I've been hearing so much gushing from others that know from quality and VQR cleaned up at the National Magazine Awards recently.
I've been stumbling across a lot of twaddle recently that suggests that patronizing indie bookstores is the act of a poseur who wants to appear smarter or literate or some such nonsense.
I'm going to patronize the Virginia Quarterly because I know it will make me smarter.
