"Why do I read Site Selection?"
As a new, and now regular, reader of Site Selection, I wanted to offer my compliments and observations. Your magazine is one of the few that I read from cover to cover. Your subjects are interesting and timely, your text is concise and actionable, and your advertisers supply useful information. Your layout of artwork and photographs grab my attention and supplement your text. Overall, Site Selection provides me with engaging, enjoyable-to-read information for the work that I do. In case others have missed the opportunity to say this, thank you for your efforts.
