I used to love buying and reading magazines. Some of my favorite magazines were Illustrated weekly of India, Femina, Eve's weekly, Woman and Home, Reader's digest, national Geograpic etc;But sadly now although some of these magazines still exist, the quality is not the same as before . More than 50% of the magazine is taken up by advertisements, The look is glossy and eye catching but the contents are not absorbing and I feel that there is more stress on glamour and hype. I still read magazines like Inside outside, Good housekeeping and Reader's digest.the one kind I have always kept away were the film magazines ... Friends how about you all? like to read magazines, if so what kind of magazines? and what do you think of the present day magazines?
