WORLD'S FIRST
READER'S DIGEST

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first Reader's Digest?

Enter DeWitt Wallace, a young man barely eking out a living publishing a digest for farmers, send him off to WWI, then confine him to a hospital to recover, with lots of time to think and voila, the idea of a digest for the general readers is born.

DeWitt Wallace and his wife Lila Acheson Wallace published the world's first Reader's Digest on February 5, 1922 but it was only available by mail at the digesty price of 10 cents.

Reader's Digest did not sell on the newsstands until 1929, but since has sold well over 10 billion copies in the U.S. alone.
