What magazines do you subscribe to?
« on: January 31, 2004, 03:37 AM »
Just curious about everyone's weekly/monthly reading habits, and what all magazines everyone out there subscribes to.  I currently subscribe to Sports Illustrated, Star Wars Insider, Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide.  That's it.  I used to have several other subscriptions, but found myself not getting as much use out of those magazines, so I cut them loose and now I just browse through them at the local bookstore when I have the time.

My girlfriend enjoys reading all those crap chick magazines, like Vogue, Cosmo, etc. and they all really screw with her head!   ::)

What do you guys read on a regular basis?

I'll have to renew SW Insider. Keeps slipping my mind.

I get:
Premiere
Spin (so I can bash what they say online)
 
And actually, that's it. Hrm.

I subscribe to several outdoor hunting and fishing magazines. :)

I buy Insider whenever the cover grabs my attention.

I'm a magazine subsciption junkie.  Right now, I get all of these (in the order that I like them :))

Men's Health
Spin
Utne Reader
The Nation
The Economist
Rolling Stone

And in the past, I've subscribed to

Star Wars Insider
Men's Fitness
Details
Time
Newsweek
US News & World Report
Vegetarian Times

...but none of those seemed to be worth it anymore.

I'm not really much of a magazine subscriber anymore, since I'll just browse through most of the ones that interest me at the bookstores and magazine stands.  I used to get about 8 back when I was in school, but right now, the only ones I get are:

Star Wars Insider (I've been subscribed ever since the very first issue)
Sports Illustrated (Patty and I got this from her dad for X-mas)
Ice Magazine (Music news, and all the upcoming CD release dates)

Patty gets all that intellectual teacher kinda stuff, like
Smithsonian
National Geographic
Couple Archaelogy rags
Couple History rags
etc.

Just the Insider, but I might subscribe to the Star Trek magazine eventually. I'm not a Trek-er, though, I just like Sci-Fi mags I guess.  :-\
