As some of you might know, I recently joined the blogging team over at Forbes Magazine's "Booked." For my latest post, I thought it would be a fun idea to feature something I had found in an old Forbes. Easier said than done.

I have a quite a few old issues, that wasn't the problem. It turns out that people just don't leave bookmarks in magazines. The articles are single servings, no need to mark your place. I ended up going though about 40 issues before I finally came upon this:
