I was thinking the other day that one thing I miss about Borders (and there aren’t many things, being completely frank) is the never ending magazine section. I know B&N still has a great magazine section, but I don’t really get over there that often, since I like to support indies. I can only think of one indie bookstore that carries magazines (Quail Ridge Books and Music), and they are mainly of the literary variety.
The thing is, I don’t subscribe to too many magazines. Do you? I’m more of a browser, which is what was so great about Borders and B&N. Alas, that set-up and my cheapness probably didn’t help the magazine industry. But I do love to read a good magazine when I see one sitting on someone’s coffee table, in the waiting room, or on the train.
So now that I have this fancy gadget, I was thinking I might actually subscribe to a few. I’d love to know: which magazines do you read?
The only magazine that I will buy and read cover to cover (usually over a period of days or weeks) is National Geographic.
A few that I’ll pick up, read and enjoy and wish I read regularly, but don’t, are New York Magazine, Paste, The Paris Review, The New Yorker and Atlanta Magazine.
My guilty pleasure reads: Martha Stewart Magazine, Real Simple, Dwell, and the online only Refinery29.
So I’m wondering, which magazines do you read?
