I bought my first copy of ST/Amiga Format from a small newsagents in Tintagel when I was on holiday with my parents in the summer of 1989. I didn't own an Amiga at that time but had a good friend that had just got an A500.
Whilst I was on holiday I read the magazine from cover to cover and couldn't wait to get back home to try the disk in my friends Amiga.
I continued buying ST/Amiga Format and then Amiga format until I got my own Amiga 500 in November of 1989. At which point I'd already amassed a few discs with which I could play!
