    Hi Everybody,

    It's pretty cheap these days to subscribe to magazines - do you have any magazine subscriptions?

    I subscribe to:
    Cosmopolitan
    Marie Claire
    Psychology Today

    It's very easy to go online to find articles, but I love getting things in the mail! big grin

    No, I don't bother with most and the only one I buy regularly or semi-regularly is the Civil War Times, anything else is just commemorative editions of LIFE and TIME.

    I haven't subscribed in years. At varying times between adolescence and the present I used to get National Geographic, Prevention, Sports Illustrated and Reader's Digest. There may have been others but I can't recall.

    I too haven't subscribed to magazines for years. From the time I was on my own at 19 all the way thru my 30s I subscribed to Playboy magazine. Periodically I had subscriptions to Playgirl magazine. For years I got National Geographic that so-called exploration magazine lost my respect and my money when they started putting clothes on their ancient human reconstructions who would not have needed them.

    Now, as part of membership, I get the magazine of AARP and Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Oops, forgot about this one. Although it's not like I asked for it.

    I subscribe to "Offbeat", a New Orleans weekly event guide, and "Blues Revue". I still subscribe because I totally hate to read articles off the computer.

    If I could afford it I'd subscribe to Civil War Times and American History, but as it is I just buy them when I see them out, I think in the long run it's cheaper.

    Probably a better value for you, yes. In past subscriptions I found that I didn't read many of the issues, including National Geographic. Now, I buy NG only when the cover feature interests me. I'm pretty good about the two mags I subscribe to now.
