Current read, one of the gifts I got @maximillian_deersteak for her birthday a week or so back. I used to read the digests in the library when I was a kid at the start of my run in middle school / junior high, 5th or 6th grade. One part history, one part crafts, one part window to a different world. I later graduated to magazines and collections of whole earth review and the like. It sort of reminds me of an informal version of those guides you could get for merit badges back in the 70s and 80s for boy scouts.
