Time? Newsweek? Haven’t purchased them in years. Same goes with any mags. Why? Because the truth is that they are WAY overpriced and the honesty is on FreeRepublic....without the bogus advertising, that’s why.

I used to get Surfer, Guns and Ammo, and Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords. No more. I only get American Rifleman with my NRA membership.

I still need my WSJ subscription and my vices are Food & Wine, This Old House, and Cigar Aficionado. Most of my trade magazines have gone online.

I receive Southern Living and Reader’s Digest as gifts. Not real happy with either of them anymore because of all of the ads and mediocre to crappy content. The only magazines I buy are Tiger Beat/Bop for my daughter. My son gets Field & Stream and Texas Highways as gifts.

I buy Dell Logic Puzzles and Original Logic Problems. As many as I can get. I figure they’ll stop printing them at some point.

I also buy one People a year, the Best and Worst Dressed issue, because my daughter and I like to laugh at the Hollyweirdos.

My daughter has a subscription to Creation Magazine, and I have one to Cook’s Illustrated.

I remember Texas Highways when I was a kid, it was really neat seeing parts of the State I hadn’t seen, but now, I just jump in the car and drive. Still, the photography in TH is excellent and it gives great inspiration.

I think my grandmother still has TH issues in boxes going back several decades or more.

I used to subscribe to National Review, Fine Homebuilding, and Guitar Player but I’ve let them all lapse over the past three or four years. I kind of miss them though, because it is nice to sit down in a chair and thumb through an actual magazine.

Exactly.

I bought an issue of Commentary for the first time in years a month ago, and I had a subscription to NR for about a year-this is the third time in my adult life-but let it lapse.

The funny thing is that Newsmax is supposedly the most popular conservative magazine on the market and it started out as a website.

Woman’s Day and Birds and Blooms. The pictures are just so beautiful in Birds and Blooms, and Woman’s Day is just IMHO the best of the women’s mags.

My son reads Motor a trade mag. That’s it.

I will tell you why people are not buying magazines these days. From this week’s Time:

“If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau revolution in Kenya is very different than ours.”

— Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, stating incorrectly in a radio interview that President Obama grew up in Kenya; he later issued a statement saying he “misspoke” and “meant to say Indonesia,” where the Hawaii-born Obama spent some childhood years.

As you can see, Time still cannot bring themselves to admit Obozo’s true birthplace. And they wonder why their circulation is down to 90,000 copies a week.

Popular Science, Psychology Today, Cycleworld, Blackbelt Magazine, pretty much just anything where the information’s falsifiable and technical.

I think coin magazines and other trade publications are still popular as you need a constant update in prices and info and many internet sites don’t list all the relevant information.

Haven’t bought a NEW magazine in years. Maybe 3-4 a year at a second hand book store. Sky and Tel, Model Aviation, various hobbies.

I love logic problem puzzles. (”The red one is neither first or second, and it is not a girl”).I play a few casual games that have them.

There is also a kind of gridded puzzle I adore. They are called Nonograms or Griddlers and there are a few casual games that have them, like World Mosaic puzzles.

I buy a few of the same magazines as you listed. I noticed last year that many of the different car mags featured editorials excoriating dhimmicrats for putting the squeeze on our “hobby”. Leading into the 2010 elections they shed their political agnosticism and urged their members to vote for the automotive aftermarket industry by voting for Republicans.

I was truly shocked (and pleased!). They got a few snipes from lefty readers but my guess is that lefties don’t care for hotrods (or much else besides spending other people’s money and degenerate sex).

Let’s hope they repeat this in 2012!

Wait a minute ‘cat, we are talking about ‘magazines’ here. That pic of yours is a thing that is always referred to as a ‘clip’ here on FR. In case you don’t know, a ‘clip’ is a thingy that holds ‘bullets’ that fit into a gun’s ‘barrel’...................LOL!!!
