My Name Is Kevin Drum, And I Am a Tablet Junkie

I finally did it. I got a review copy of a book a few weeks ago and started reading it on Monday. After 50 pages I decided I wanted to read the whole thing, but the experience of reading an actual physical book was so annoying that I went ahead and bought an e-copy. That’s $14 to buy a book I already owned. I am officially a hopeless tablet junkie now.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
