I haven't read a book in awhile because I've been catching up on my giant pile of magazines. I love to subscribe to things, primarily because I love to get mail. I realized this morning that I keep a running list of all the books I've read, but I never list the magazines. In honor of subscription lovers everywhere, these are the magazines to which I subscribe:

Cooking Light (most of the articles appear to be written for middle-aged women, but the recipes are awesome)

Everyday Food (Martha Stewart's more casual food magazine. The pictures make you want to cook everything)

Granta (a book-sized quarterly of fiction, essays, and photos. AWESOME)

Harpers (my longest continuous subscription -- ever since my junior year of high school)

Interview (its only like 10 bucks a year and I like the pictures)

Jane (girly mag)

National Geographic (on and off)

Oxford American (went out of business for almost two years, and is now back. southern lit and articles. nice photo essays)

Smithsonian (inexpensive, nice pictures, fun to read on the bus)

Sun (kind of new agey and a little spiritual for me, but usually has good fiction. was a gift subscription – ended recently)

Texas Journey (free magazine with AAA, I read this on the toilet.)

I really feel like I'm forgetting something, but I'm not sure what... Although, its pretty awesome to forget you subscribe to something and then have it come in the mail.

So, what magazines do you subscribe to? I bet I get more than anybody. Lets have a contest!

i subscribe to Bust and that is all. I used to get Lucky but sexy high heel shoes are not four of my favorite words, so I had to quit.

I don't get nothin. I used to get the American Tae Kwon Do Association's newsletter when I took it at school. It had a lot of great photos of middle-aged white guys making tough faces.

US News & World Report... I also get Self and Elle, but I am not sure why or how. Do psych journals count?

I am boring. You win.

Ooh, if we count professional journals I get three archives journals at home, and four or five math journals at work. I don't really read the math journals though (well, I read the stuff I can understand), and I'm way behind on the archives journals. I'm totally kicking ass in this contest.
