Ode Magazine until recently.

It’s an excellent magazine, but I found myself reading books and online stuff more often and I let my subscription expire.

New Scientist, Empire and Creative Review. I occasionally buy a copy of Men’s Health or GQ, but not very often.

PnT, you read my mind! I was planning on asking the same question :). I don’t pay for any of my subscriptions but currently I get TV Guide (love it) and Harpers Bazaar (don’t care for it). I saw Allure at my aunt’s house the other day and it looked interesting, so I might get that one next. I also think National Geographic might be an interesting one to look into.

…I also get a friend of mine in the US to mail me copies of Lemon. That counts as a subscription, sort of!

YRB, SI, Men’s health and some other magazines (use your imagination).

Time Magazine
Wired ( 2 years for 16 bucks)
Travel & Leisure (i never subscribed to it – it came with a credit card and hardly ever read it, but the magazine has some of the best layouts, color mashups and effective use of typography – and so i have never bothered to cancel it)

Has anyone here heard of Paste Magazine? It’s a great what’s new in the musical world monthly rag, and every issue comes with a sampler CD or new and newly popular bands. I’ve read a couple of music magazines, and I find I like it the best because of how much less mainstream it seems.

@judochop: how is juxtapoz? we sell it at the bookstore where I work, and i’ve never bothered to look at a copy?

gailcalled's avatar

None. I use the public library and give them a yearly donation.

galileogirl's avatar

The Economist
soon The Nation

But I recycle by bringimg them in for students to read

Makstarn's avatar

I get Popular Science because the entire magazine is worth reading. I used to subscribe to Wired but it has become very bland and boring the last few years.

Kraigmo's avatar

Foreign Affairs
Cannabis Culture (until its recent discontinuation)
High Times
West Coast Cannabis
Backwoods Home

…and The Economist until earlier this year

(and why do almost all dentists feel that all women want to read People, all men want to read Car & Driver, and all children want to read Highlights? )

sahID's avatar

Currently, Pacific Standard is the only print subscription I have.

However, on my Amazon Fire HD tablet, I have picked up:
Allrecipies Magazine (the only one that I didn’t have a print subscription to at some point in the past)
The American Scholar
The Atlantic
Food Network Magazine
The New York Review of Books
The New Yorker
Smithsonian Magazine
