when i was a regular pioneer in the late 1960's----i liked all the publications---because when i "placed" something i made a healthy profit.
for example --pioneers paid one british old penny for each magazine--and sold them for four pence each.
it was encouraged to develope a magazine "route"--regular delivery to householders---nice---a couple of hundred sold per month soon mounted up
and when those black-bound flexible covered bibles came out---about 7/6 pence i think---sold like hot cakes.
all this sales training gave me a really healthy greedy grabbing chiselling outlook on life-----so my JW youth wasnt entirely wasted.
