It’s time for you English language purists to cringe again. I’ve got a new word for you: Magbook, and you are going to be hearing more about them in the future.
What’s a Magbook? Well, it’s part magazine, part book of course. A softbound, magazine-sized book focusing on a particular subject area, the word is spelled either Magbook or MagBook, and an alternate name is Bookazine. No, you won’t find it in the dictionary just yet – it takes time for official acceptance of a new word.
So why am I writing about Magbooks? Because Open Door Publications is publishing one, of course! On sale beginning Feb. 1, Identity: This Magbook Will Empower You to Accept. Appreciate. Achieve™ is a compilation of the best of an online magazine, Identity, which you can find at www.identitymagazine.net.
Susan Vernicek is the founder and editor and chief of Identity Magazine. “Identity was created not only for the average woman, but for that unique woman within all of us,” she explains. “We are all individual in our thoughts, interests, beliefs, and experiences. Each of us harbors our own fears, doubts, questions, and insecurities. That’s why I created Identity – to bring to women a positive and safe place to turn for information, inspiration, support, sharing, and permission to just be they you are.”
Like the magazine, the Identity Magbook is a unique blend of articles written by experts on subjects ranging from emotional health to exercise and articles and letters written by the readers themselves.
