I do... I read cosmo, allure, & glamour. They come to me in the mail. If you do read magazines... which ones do you read? and what parts do you like the most? I dont usually read about the celebs unless its someone I kinda like. I like getting beauty advise from them. If you read alot of mags like me. what do you do with the old ones? I made a little table like stand out of my old magazines!

i do tend to read alot of magazines these days because i do not really have the time to devote to reading novels and such like i used to. i throw the magazines away as soon as i am done reading them as i do not like alot of clutter. or if i think someone i know will enjoy it i will save it and give it to them when i am done with it.

I read a lot of online magazines (e-mags as they're called), but as a poor college student I haven't really subscribed to any paper magazines, even though I'd honestly prefer to. I used to get Brio, a christian girl magazine, but the recession ate that publication so it stopped coming. I really liked that magazine, and I still have all my old copies of it. I don't really know what to do with them. I might go through them one day and find the ones I want to keep and the ones I think can go to the recycle now.

If you drink coca cola you should do my coke rewards and save the points. I subscribed to my magazines all from my coke rewards didn't cost me anything except what I normally spend on cokes!

Well that'd be great... but I don't drink coka a cola. lol I can't drink anything with caffeine in it, and besides I don't even like the taste of it. But thanks for the tip! I'll see if one of my friends can make use of this....

I like to read travel magazines sometimes like 'Real Travel' and 'Lonely Planet'. Sometimes I get magazines like 'Ideal Time' and 'Your Home'. Those magazines cost money. I like to read free magazines sometimes like the one produced by Waitrose.

I LOVE mags! Over the years I have toned down the volume that I buy. I'm down to 2 a week now, except on the odd occassion that I slip up. I get New Weekly and Famous which probably won't ring a bell for anyone outside Australia. But they are pure gossip, very little beauty or fashion. When I'm finished with them I take them to a doctors surgery for the waiting room. I couldn't bear to throw them out.

I read redbook, people, vogue, good housekeeping, cosmopolitan, candy, and other magazines as i learn a lot from them from different tips and also love to look at different photos. I like to read the editorial section and the scoop of the day then some recipes and house designing and so on. they gives plenty of ideas to savor. Well, i am just a passive reader and usually it is my niece who have great collection.

I love reading. I read both novels and books.But i enjoy reading magazines more.I live in a remote place where magazines are not availablr so I subscribe for many. I like reading'Reader's digest' 'People' 'Good Housekeeping' 'The Week' 'Gurlz' 'Savvy'and 'Femina'.I read a whole lot of magazines. I find the ones that I have mentioned interesting.I do read some film magazines that's just to know the film gossip.But the other magazines are really good. I read the entire magazine.If I open a particular magazine I must read from cover to cover only then I am done with it.I pass on my old magazines to friends for them to read. I have friends who like to read but they do not subscribe.Its nice to give it people who will enjoy reading them.

Reading magazines not only increases knowledge but also it gives us amusement. There are different kind of magazines for different kind of people. But most of the people read magazines for glamour not for knowledge or learning. But I like to read magazines for knowledge, Sometimes I also read entertaining articles for mind refreshment.

I read magazines that revolve around the theme of video games. I particularly like to read Gamepro because it gives me all the latest information about upcoming releases/titles.

Same here. I usually read Good Housekeeping aside from parenting, health and personal finance magazines that are published here in my country. I also read the celebs part only when they seem interesting. Otherwise, I prefer spending more time on the pages about raising kids, relationships, finance and recipes. I keep a lot of old magazine issues especially those where my articles appeared. I store them in the big cabinet space under the TV :)

I really don't read magazines, most of them are pretty obsolete in my opinion. They do lots of things the web does much better. When all a magazine is giving you is a ton of pictures and bite size articles, the internet can do that but give it to you faster. I think magazines are a bit backwards right now, and there needs to be more magazines with longer content and do fresh things, but they just seem to be few and far between.

your response is pretty much the same as the persons before you. hehe. I like not relying on the internet for everything, but i guess you can get the same stuff from the web.

Magazines to me are kinda obsolete. with the use of the internet now, Magazines dont really offer anything to you that the internet cant, besides a cure for boredom while waiting in a doctors office. But when I was younger I liked to read J14, Bop, ya know, typical teen magazines. And I usually never read the articles, I just looked at the pics hehehe

For one reason or for another, I don't really read magazines. I might pick one up once in a while and read it, but it doesn't really happen very often. I'm not really into reading magazines. I'm more into reading books, novels, and such.

I like to read a lot of magazines from entertainment, lifestyle, home and interior design and beauty magazines. I like to keep them for a number of years too. Sometimes I cut out pictures or words and use them in my scrapbooks. With regards to the home and interior design ones I keep them for future reference. I keep them in a cabinet and browse from them from time to time. The celebrity ones I give away when I feel like I don't have a use for them anymore.

I love car magazines, but as far as others are concerned I just read a few of here and there only. Old magazines; there are lots at home and my mom sometimes recycle it to put on tables or to place things on top and etc..
