Hitting Rewind on Today’s Read 2019

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is almost in our rear view mirror, but the end of the year also means the editors at VMAIL Weekend have nearly 52 Today's Read features in our back pockets. Putting together these stories can prove to be challenging, but it allows our editors to think outside the “optical” box and find a new writing comfort zone in order to bring our readers an informative, yet easy read for a Saturday morning. The subject matter for 2019 certainly ran the gamut, from eyewear’s supporting role in a blockbuster movie season to a look back at the Apollo 11 moon landing which marked its 50th anniversary in 2019. Here’s a look at some of our most popular and well read features from this year, which we hope you’ll enjoy.
