Sto­ries About Real Peo­ple

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters -

Grow­ing up in the 1980s, some of my ear­li­est and fond­est mem­o­ries are of stretch­ing out on a lawn chair pe­rus­ing Reader’s Di­gest with my grand­mother. For hours we’d share jokes and ar­ti­cles and en­joy the mag­a­zine to­gether. I taught my­self to read by sit­ting through decades of is­sues ly­ing around my grand­mother’s house. I was al­ways amazed the sto­ries were about real peo­ple. I felt I knew them. As an only child in a pre-in­ter­net era, the con­nec­tion meant a lot to me. LAURA MOORE
