Spanish Version of 'Reader's Digest'
What's the world's top-selling monthly magazine? Thanks to the boost of its international editions, Reader's Digest is the world's best-selling monthly magazine; it is published in 35 languages, in 52 editions, and is sold in more than 100 countries. Many of the international editions are simply translations of the US version, but in a growing number of countries, articles of local interest and importance are written expressly for the local version of Reader's Digest. DeWitt and Lila Acheson Wallace published their first issue — 5,000 copies — of the undersized magazine on February 5, 1922. It cost 25¢ and was sold by mail. In 1929, the magazine was first sold at newsstands. It was DeWitt Wallace's idea to condense articles — and later, books — that would be gathered in a magazine small enough to slip into a pocket or a bag. Alexander Graham Bell wrote the lead article in the first issue; it was about the importance of continuing to learn throughout one's life.
Quote:
"I knew right away that it was a gorgeous idea." Lila Acheson Wallace, on her husband's suggestion of Reader's Digest
