We are bombarded with magRags at the check-out cuonters at all grocery stores. Curious.......who buys magazines any more? If you do, which ones do you buy?
Why bother ? We have the Internet.
Mostly buy/have subscriptions to, sewing magazines (3-4). Handy Man subscription just ran out. DH didn’t seem to want to read it anyway.
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.
Still get Popular Mechanics, but that’s it.
Hot Rod, Truck Trend, Handguns, Guns & Ammo, Gun-Tests, etc......
Everythinge else is internet. No newspapers.
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.
BACKPACKER-just renewed for $19.95 for 2 yrs. Damn good publication...
Popular Mechanics - always a good one.
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.
Country Living. Sub rate is cheap.
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.
Latitudes and Attitudes. With every country turning toward socialism, some uninhabited islands may be the only place to live free soon.
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.
