Mystery Solved

Thanks to an article in  a magazine I read, strangely enough in a Doctor's waiting room, the age old mystery of "Why are there no good and current magazines in doctor's waiting rooms?"

Of course there are exceptions to every rule, and the magazine that peeled back the covers of this heretofore unknown phenomenon was one.

It was called the Business Insider.

And, according to columnist Kevin Loria,

"If there are current magazines around, people steal them!"

Their research showed that gossipy magazines (those having at least 5 celebrities on the cover) are also stolen as often as current ones.

The National Geographic is stolen most often.

TIME and THE ECONOMIST magazine are almost NEVER stolen.

In the comments section of the article, a reader suggests that the solution is to bring a really  good
book that you can't wait to read, with you.  That, according to the reader, will assure that you will be called by the nurse within seconds of your arrival, even ahead of all the others who have been waiting forever.
