I love reading, and I love to read magazines when I want to read but I'm not yet ready to pick up another book. I am curious about what magazines other folks read. We use airline miles to subscribe to magazines for the most part, but I do pay for my Runner's World, which is probably my favorite magazine of all time!
Here is what we get:
Runner's World - my fav, I think it has great feature articles and I love to read about the regular people runners and the destination races!
The Economist - good new source, I never read everything in it but it has global coverage which I like. It generally has well-written Letters to the Editor, interesting Book Reviews and Memorial profiles about people and books that I probably wouldn't hear about otherwise. Not to mention the actual news articles, of course.
Redbook - I think of this as my mom magazine - I usually read it and then toss it, I like some of the fashion, but I'm not in love with it.
Inc. - my husband picked this one out. I read it sometimes, but if we stopped getting it I wouldn't miss it.
Coastal Living - this magazine always makes me miss the beach. If we ever buy a house with a guest room, you'd better believe I will have an ocean/beach-themed room based on ideas from this magazine!
Sunset - I don't think I'd get this if we didn't live in the NW, but I love it! Makes me want to travel all over the NW, even though it typically seems very California-focused.
Princeton Alumni Weekly - the magazine from our alma mater. First I always check the "Memorials" section, then the Class Notes, and then the Letters to the Editor. The LttE can be pretty confrontational at time, so I get a kick out of reading them! This mag is not actually weekly anymore, but it has interesting articles and I like hearing about what's happening on campus. I read it and then give a book report to my husband, who could care less!
I used to get Shape, but then it started to read too much like Cosmo and so I canceled that subscription. I love me some Southern Living but I don't have a subscription right now. Whenever we would fly somewhere, I used to always buy SL in the airport, but the idea of reading while flying with a toddler is a joke now. I am thinking about subscribing to Magnificat and Verily magazine - I've heard good things about both but never read them. And I can't walk through a Barnes and Noble without skimming the latest People - that would be my guilty reading pleasure!
Which magazines do you like to read? Got any recommendations for me?
