Relevant

my wife's grandmother used to get us Reader's Digest

When I was a kid, I got Sports Illustrated and Model Railroader.

When I was in high school, I took Architectural Digest.

My uncle has a lot of subscriptions to professional design journals that get passed around the family now: Architectural Lighting, Architectural Digest, Town and Country etc etc

Hmm, I think I've taken Popular Mechanics in the past too, now that I think of it.

And we do presently get Mission Frontiers, although it's free.

The New Yorker (its impossible to get hold of outside of London, although subscribing to it does derive me of the great pleasure of picking it up at St Pancras' WH Smith on the way back from visiting my brother and devouring it cover to cover on the train journey home. I occasionally wonder if it wasn't more satisfying than being able to read it on a regular basis, it was a luxury to be treasured and a bit of a ritual then.)

Sight and Sound

Journal of American Studies

Atlantic Monthly

And occasionally:

The New Yorker

Thinking about doing Paste (heh, heh, funny sentence), but it would be purely for the sampler discs. There's only one or two articles an issue that interest me.

My problem with reading about music is that what I read about a particular artist ends up having very little to do with whether or not I enjoy their music when I actually hear it.

Y'know, I don't think I DO get any magazines any more, apart from alumni publications and the like. A couple of newspapers, yes, but money is tight and the internet is plentiful and bla bla bla. And as we prepare to move to a new home (in a few months, whenever we can get around to it), I am feeling just that extra little bit of pressure to get rid of some of my collections. (I'm such a pack rat.)

In the past, I subscribed to, at various points:

Biblical Archaeology Review (off and on between 1983 and c. 2000)

Bible Review (off and on from its premiere issue c. 1987 to c. 2000)

Books & Culture (off and on)

Christian History (fairly consistently through the 1990s, possibly into the early 2000s)

The Door (from the early '90s to shortly after Ole Anthony's takeover)

Entertainment Weekly (off and on from issue #4 in 1990 up to a few years ago)

Paste (only for its inaugural year)

Premiere (I still have the premiere issue from 1987 in pristine condition; off and on until a few years ago)

Time (for a brief spell in the late '90s)

I might -- might -- have even subscribed to Rolling Stone for a brief spell in the late '90s, when I fancied myself an all-around entertainment journalist and not a film guy.

My mom paid for a subscription of Reader's Digest.

I've been skimming different magazines to see which ones appeal. I like to take them to the gym (when I go).

Right now I suscribe to Discover Magazine and Archaeology Magazine.

I picked up a few that I think I may suscribe to eventually: History Magazine and either Scientific American or American Scientist--one I liked, one I didn't. Can't remember which, though.

I have a few In Style magazines due to a free promotion, and I briefly suscribed to National Geographic, but quit when I realized I wasn't reading them and didn't care to.

I can't believe how many magazines you people subscribe to! I really struggle to get through my measly 3 subscriptions (1 weekly, 1 monthly, 1 quarterly). I'm aware that magazine subscriptions in the states are cheap as muck, but still, I'm assuming that either the magazines go unread, or you have no life and spend all your free time with your nose in a magazine, or you have a bad case of constipation and need a lot of toilet reading.

Geez Louise. That's where all the rainforests are going.

You're in good company, Gigi. I subscribe to three, Paste, National Geographic, and Worship Leader. And in all honesty, I read those only because of being given them as gift subscriptions, by family members.

However, if you count the magazines I bum off of family members when visiting home, you could add

Image Journal

Books and Culture

PC Magazine

Christian Musician

Acoustic Guitar

CCM magazine

Christianity Today

Reader's Digest

Time

US News

Gilbert Magazine

Relevant.
