    Wonder what magazine (genre, not necessary to list specific name) you SUBSCRIBE to or that you BUY REGULARLY?

    We don't get many at home as we have a "waiting room subscription service" that sends us a variety of magazines to our clinic each month.

    I think we get:
    Ladies - Women's Day/Working Mother
    Family - National Geographic/Readers Digest/Focus on the Family
    Religious ones for pastors
    Hobby - American Cowboy/Civil War

    And your family?

    Here are our subscriptions:
    Car & Driver, Motor Trend, Popular Photography, Outdoor Photography,
    National Review, World Magazine,
    Tabletalk, Modern Reformation,
    Martha Stewart Living, Cousine at Home,
    Parents, Parenting - my wife hates one of them (forgot which) because it is too liberal, so we will not extend the subscription,
    We also have Sunday subscription to San Jose Mercury News - if it were not for the house ads and coupons we would not be subscribing to it, unfortunately there is no decent daily newspaper available in the Bay Area.

    We get Traditional Home,World magazine and the children get World magazine for kids which is Top Story and News Current. We use it as supplemental history/current events for school.

    My husband gets quite a few for his office waiting room,too. I don't know what all they are...I think Parenting,Style,and Family Fun....not sure what else.

    The only regular subscription I have is to one of those home electronics (stereo, speakers, TVs, etc.) mags. I fairly regularly will read Discover, Ski, and Scientific American.

    I subscribe to Gentlemen's Quarterly, though I am getting more and more disappointed with them.

    There was a time when GQ was a classy, elegant magazine for men. Now, it is trying more and more to be like Maxim, and I do not like that one bit. Maxim is juvenile and stupid, and I cannot stand that GQ feels that they have to stoop to that level. It was fine just the way it was.

    Time will tell if I stop the subscription.

    Since I work for a magazine clearing house, I read the following on a regular basis: Entrepenuer, Forbes, Men's Fitness, and my favorite,Time. As a family we read: Family Fun, Parents, TV Guide. My wife reads: Family Circle, Women's Day. My daughter Reads: YM, Disney Adventures. I just got my first issue today of ESPN. So we read quite a few magazines. [​IMG]
