Where did the magazines go...??

Dear Circ,

I am so confused. First, the new books moved to where the magazines were, and then the magazines were in boxes on the shelves where the new books used to be. I thought I had that figured out, but now I've come in to browse my favorite magazines, and what do I find? Graphic novels. Nice try, but not quite the same. Where did the magazines go now??

Dear Magnus,

Well, the boxes weren't working out the way we thought they would. The magazines were bending, not easy to see and even falling out of the boxes. Sometimes ideas just don't work the way we expect, it's called the law of unintended consequences. We're keeping the boxes though, we're just laying them flat, so the magazines are even easier to browse. They start right behind the graphic novels and continue, placed on the next set of shelves under the newspapers. So all the "current events" materials (along with other favorite magazines) are all together. We even put a comfy chair next to the magazine shelves for someplace to "perch and page." We hope you like it!
