Today’s question:
So other than books … what periodicals do you read? Magazines? Newspapers? Newsletters? Journals?
Do you subscribe? Or do you buy them on the newsstand when they look interesting?

My response:
I occasionally read periodicals other than books, not as much as I used to.  Years ago, I did subscribe to some magazines like Good Housekeeping and Family Circle.  And the past couple of years my husband subscribed to magazines like Time, News WeekEntertainment Weekly  because he gets points through one of his CC for a 1 year free subscription.  The current subscription being delivered is Sports Illustrated, which the only time I pick up is when it’s time to put it in the recyclable bin, I am definitely not a sports fan.  Since, I am often in a doctor’s waiting room, I will peruse the magazines and if one looks like it has some interesting articles, I will pick it up to read instead of my book, which goes with me everywhere.  Until recently, we would have the newspaper delivered daily, which I did read every day.  However, the paper was getting smaller and smaller but more expensive.  So we are currently trying an online paid subscription, however, it just doesn’t feel the same and I will go days without signing in to read.

What about you?  Do you read magazines, papers, etc.?  Do you subscribe to certain reading material?

  1. I forgot to address the issue of newspapers…I used to subscribe to a daily, but now only receive the Sunday paper, which was always my favorite.

    I should eliminate some subscriptions, as the magazines stack up quickly!

  2. Our paper just doubled in price. We’re still getting it but have thought about discontinuing the service. It’s the only thing I read besides books.

  3. I read newspapers daily and magazines once in a while.
