What magazines do you subscribe to?

Asked by SamIAm (8628 points ) February 4th, 2011

I enjoy mostly the DIY/home/girly magazines/self improvement (Real Simple, RedBook, Good Housekeeping, Oprah) but just received my first subscription of Time in the mail and feel like a real person (now, if only I take the time to read it!).

What do you enjoy reading? What magazines get delivered to your home that you don’t ever read? Which would you like to receive (I think they’re great presents)?

I love getting Astonomy, Games, and the New Yorker, but I don’t subscribe to any.

My two are ‘enlightenment today’ & ‘Budget travel.’

What else would a middle aged hippie throwback need?
Travel in Zen mode…that’s all there is in my humble opinion. lol

I had Scientific American for a while, and Better Homes and Gardens for a while, also. Seemed like a waste of money, I never renewed my subscriptions.

Ladymia69's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf I don’t know if you are into alternative womens’ magazines with a feminist slant, but the two above are worth looking into.

Ladymia69's avatar

@SamIAm have you checked out the two I mentioned?

The New Yorker.

Every week has a long newsy article, a short story, poetry, humor and a bunch of short pieces. And of course lots and lots of cartoons.

Oddly enough, my home gets free copies of Reader’s Digest mailed to it. There are so many doctors in my family that Reader’s Digest probably thinks my house is a clinic!

CaptainHarley's avatar

Scientific American
Scientific American Mind
Discover
American Rifleman
And the magazines of the various veteran and military organizations to which I belong.

I have an online subscription to Consumer Reports.
My hard-copy subscription to MAD magazine expired, but I’ll probably renew it.
I had an unrequested sub to Rolling Stone, but it might have expired.

New Yorker
Real Simple
Utne
Martha Stewart (I think my daughter sent me a subscription to this; it just started coming)

Seelix's avatar

I don’t subscribe to any magazines, but I do buy a few every now and then. I like:

Skeptic
Bust
Psychology Today
Mental Floss
Scientific American Mind
The Hockey News

Very rarely will I buy a news magazine; we get the Toronto Star for free at our building and watch CBC for news.

Twinkletoes22's avatar

Vegetarian Times

Sunset

Better Homes and Gardens

Cooking Light

I love just about any kind of cooking magazine and often pick them up for a quarter or a dime at the thrift store. I also like home improvement/home and garden types of magazines. I like looking at Martha Stewart’s Living, but the recipes are way too complicated and time consuming for my taste. I like Rachel Ray’s magazine, but she doesn’t have enough vegetarian recipes for me to subscribe. I love looking at Paula Deen’s magazine, but a lot of her stuff is just too fattening, and also not enough veg recipes. But for the holidays, Paula rocks!
