Pondering Magazines

I used to subscribe to a bunch of magazines, but lately, I've been letting them all expire. I guess I just got sick of them. Real Simple, Family Fun, Quilter's Newsletter, Discover, etc.

But now I'm finding I miss getting the magazines in the mailbox. I REALLY miss my book magazines... one of them went bankrupt, and the other I finally renewed today (Bookmarks). Hopefully it will start coming again soon!

So, now I'm pondering what magazines are out there that I'd really like? Not your normal, everyone-reads-them type... but some really fun, interesting and unusal ones? I've been really tempted by Mental Floss (anyone heard of it) but haven't pushed the button yet.

So my question to you all is, what fun magazines are you reading? What am I missing? What do I really need to subscribe to?

Any suggestions?


  1. I've been back in the USA after 18 years abroad and one of the first things I did was subscribe to PEOPLE magazine. What can I say - it's my dirty little secret - I love reading all the trash (though I was heartened that Mountains Beyond Mountains refers to PEOPLE as the journal of popular studies!)
    But I don't think I'm going to renew, I'll just read the magazines at the library and I'm thinking of using the subscription money to rent audiobooks instead.

  2. Have you ever read Brain, Child? It's one of my favorite magazines ever.

  3. I only subscribe to Entertainment Weekly. Every week it has great reviews on not only tv and movies, but also books!

    I like Mental Floss, Skeptic, and all the fashion magazines (those are my guilty pleasure).

  4. Mental Floss is great, and I second the Brain, Child rec. Those are probably my favorites.
