Have you ever lusted after someone else’s newspaper? I have.
I still enjoy the pleasure of holding a paper in my hands. Amazingly, my convenience store in this small rural town carries the Financial Times. I purchase one a week and pour over all the articles. Glimpses of British culture can be found within it’s depths.
Now, I find myself wishing to read Korean newspapers. I’ve seen Chinese print newspapers in the Berkshires, but not yet gotten my hands on a Korean paper. I know I can read the articles online for the Korea Herald or the Chosun Ilbo. Yet for me, it is not the same as having a piece of paper in my hands I can circle unknown words in red and pour over an article slowly.
If anyone wants to mail me a Korean language newspaper, I would be so grateful. It’s not learning, it is just having fun!
