So I was working behind the table at the book booth during the BLADE Show this past weekend in Atlanta, a great show, by the way, best ever. And this gentleman was interested in buying the “First 25 years of BLADE Collection: 1973-1997” DVD. He said he already owned the DVD that came after it, “BLADE 1997-2007.”
The lady he was with asked, “Why don’t you just subscribe to BLADE®?”
He replied, “I can get 25 years worth of the magazine for $42.99, why would I want to pay $21.98 for one year?”
She said, “The subscription is new magazines, not old magazines, that’s why!”
It got me thinking that neither one of them was wrong. I prefer to get my magazine when it comes out, but to each their own. And I’m just glad they enjoy the magazine well enough to have the conversation.
