While we love magazines, stores can sometimes have an off-puttingly large selection of magazines to pick from.

Thankfully there’s a remedy at hand. Stack are a magazine subscription service that narrows the selection down to eight independent magazines and delivers one at random each month. It’s an ingenious way to become acquainted with a new magazine, and the well edited magazine list ensures that the quality remains high. If you ever feel bombarded walking into a Borders, this is the service for you.
