Do you subscribe to any magazines or journals? Do you like them? What are they? I don't know how many responses I'll get to this, but I'm curious to see any and all.
As I've mentioned before, I do a lot of reading, and am not overly particular on what I read. Well, I am sort of particular, but I don't, for example, just read a single genre to the exclusion of all else. I don't read a lot of book-length nonfiction, but I won't say never.
On the subject of non-book-length nonfiction, my taste in magazines is all over the place too. Truthfully, except for a few cooking magazines, I should rephrase that to "my distaste in magazines is all over the place". Right now, we get Cooking Light and Cook's Illustrated, and I've had a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens forever, which isn't horrible (not great either, though--kind of unsatisfying in cooking, family life, decorating, and gardening all at the same time). We got Rolling Stone for about a year as a freebie with some concert tickets, and that was one of the more interesting subscriptions in recent years, but I felt too uneducated about the music and media business to follow anything but the long articles. We get Parenting (or is it Parents?) magazine, not because it's great, but because my daughter loves the Sesame Street kids mag that comes with it (and it's cheap). I used to subscribe to several sewing magazines (Burda, Threads..), but those became expensive eye candy (though I'm getting a decent amount back out of my Burda collection, thanks to Ebay....), and always made me annoyed about the time I don't have to spend creating some of the beautiful garments they would showcase. We have a handful of software journals, but I rarely read those (don't feel like reading about work once I'm gone, somehow).
I keep wondering if there is something out there that would be interesting to read for more than a year or so. The pop-culture mags don't seem to fit--Vogue, Glamour, Cosmo, etc. I rotate through various home-type ones (Traditional Home, Southern Living, etc), but they get kidn of repetitive after a while (and the rooms they feature are horrendously expensive). I keep tossing around the idea of National Geographic or Popular Science, or ? I just don't know. So, I'm curious to see what other people read. Maybe it'll spark some ideas...
