Many people love to read books and newspaper,but there are still others who love to read magazines.Why ? I don't know about you,but for me....Just to relax and get to know something new.There are many different kinds of magazines,but I think I like Time magazine because you can always learn something new in there and with great articles and writers in it.It is a bit expensive when compare to others ,but i think it has its value ,because of its popularity.What about you?Share with us?

I generally don't read or buy magazines.They are trashy one time reads that I'll read once then chuck somewhere.So I don't bother buying magazines.

I like to read two kinds of magazines: on health problems and their natural remedies and on writers and writing, especially young literature. These are my two hobbies and I want to be informed by reading a lot. I always have something to learn from these magazines. I buy magazines every month, but there are also some on the internet.

When was younger I often read magazines for women, and I enjoyed reading about fashion, music, movies, relationships and all those things. Now I hardly ever buy those magazines, because they are quite expensive, and they often write about the same topics over and over. I sometimes buy magazines about psychology and travelling. I love to read about other countries and cultures and I think that the magazines about travelling are very interesting. I also enjoy reading about psychology, because I study psychology at the moment and it is nice to learn something new.

I love reading magazines especially woman's era. It's a nice magazine, most popular woman's magazine. The magazine has lots of content from where I learn a lot and it's a knowledgeable magazine. I have been reading it from last many years and I am regular reader of this magazine, Woman's Era is the largest selling women's fortnightly magazine in English in India. This book has been designed specially for women. Of course, it attracts lots of men..It reflects the spirit of today's woman -- changing with the times, moving with trends, styles, fashion, etc.

I too prefer books over magazines, first of all the price for a magazine is getting outragous anymore. But I sometimes by ones like Better Homes and Garden, or magazines that have recipes in them. I too usually just buy what looks interesting on the cover or what has drawn my attention.

I like to read Rolling Stone, Time, Harper's Bazaar and other magazine that you might not know because it was only published in my country. I prefer magazine that suits my interest like music, fashion, economic and a bit politic. I don't like the ones that full with tips, self helps, gossips, testimonials etc.

when i was a kid, i liked to read anime / manga magazines because i was such a fan of them. but now i don't really like magazines, because almost all of the magazines that directed to my age (around 17) are girly magazines that contain gossips or things that i don't really like. now i like to read my mom's cooking magazines, i like it more than those 'girly' magazines.

I love to read Reader's Digest since I was a kid. I found the mag very informative, heart warming & funny at the same time. I like to read life stories & experiences from other ordinary people and cried to their sad and touching stories. When I am in the mood for laugh, I'll check on it's funnies section which mostly sent & shared by fellow RD readers. The best thing is, it comes in small size which is very easy for me to carry in my handbag :)

Hello good day!! When I was in my college I really like to read magazines every now and then. I always buy issue of the magazine every month. I like to read candy magazine at that time. Because it talks about teenage life and talks about tips and advices being in the adolescent stage. Then after college when I am already working I like to read cosmopolitan magazine, I like this magazine because it talks about the womanhood and relationship. It also discuss and give tips about life being in a relationship and so much more that concern about relationship and personality. It even give tips more on the fashion and food or dieting. Then after that since I am a mother now, it changes as well my level of interest. Now I like to read goodhousekeeping I only have a few magazine about that one. Because I just recently love it. It gives a lot of advices about motherhood.

I like reading business magazines, like Business Weekly and Economits. They always have some good articles containing deep analysis on the important events in the business world. This is the biggest differences between newspaper and magazine. We can get the latest information from newspaper, the best commentary and analysis from magazine.

I like to read Working Mom or Good Housekeeping, these 2 magazines are the usual which I would buy. I like the tips, the advices, and the articles which would talk about being a mother or family relationships and friendships. These magazines had been helpful for me in a lot of practical ways. I even had tips on how to earn and save money. From time to time I would buy Preview or Cosmopolitan. I love the clothes and the latest makeup or jewelry trends there. If it's for fashion then definitely these 2 mags. I'll check the "in" thing and would look for the affordable likes in the market. My mom on the other hand, loves to buy showbiz magazines. I will just share that with her. Sometimes it's also necessary to be updated on what is happening in showbiz you know.

I seldom read magazines because I don't have any subscription in particular. When I go bookstores and magazines stands, I just take a look on the cover and if some articles caught my fancy, I buy it. But when I go to salons and some establishments where magazines were at hand, I just take a scan on them to pass time.
