    I've randomly read just about every National Geographic publication at one point or another... I LIKE to read about other places!

    Iv'e always loved it too. Never subscribed to anything though, but i do believe in recycling books and magazines. I bought a huge box of old second hand national gepgraphic magazines at the book stall in portobello for 2 pounds-great deal. I also like the idea that they have been read befor. They will be passed on to other hands too.

    Well I don't actually subscribe to any magazines...But if I did then let's see... I would probably go with:
    Psychology Today - because it seems like it would interest me.
    Maxim - For the articles of course.
    and maybe ummm... a Cosmo or something - to educate my feminine side.

    I don't subscribe to anything. If I had a static address, I would subscribe to the Economist, though, which I occasionally buy and frequently browse online.

    I used to buy Commodore Format so regularly I might as well have subscribed, I had subscribed to the UK reprints of The Punisher before it went bust or stopped printing, the last magazine I subscribed to was, oddly enough, a horrible histories series but the newsagent was lousy and sold my copies every once in a while so I stopped going by there.

    I've thought about subscribing to a sci fi magazine, its good not just for movies but dvds, books and paraphernalia too so I buy it when I need to read something on the train or travelling.

    Computer and science mags in the past

    Right now I am off magazines for life, after being in an industry where i was literally swamped and throwing out magazines by the bin full weekly, we are talking big bin. With every kind of magazine imaginable I developed allergies to touching the chemicals of the prints.

    (2) Scientific American Mind / Great articles on all aspects of cognitive function.

    (3) TIME / Because I have no cable TV, and do not read the newspaper regularly, so I like periodicals to keep current.

    (4) Newsweek / See (3) above...

    (5) Florida Design / For inspiration as to how to build the ultimate Hacienda when I have the $$$.

    (6) GQ / For fashion trends, insane gadgets, cool advertisements, and free cologne samples.

    I like New Scientist and Scientific American. Scientific American Mind is also a good. I tend to buy them depending on the issue. I also like to buy the odd Lit Journal, again depending on the issue.

    The only magazine I buy every issue without fail is Art & Australia.

    My sister is going into Magazine Journalism and PR - specifically Fashion/Culture. She has subscriptions to almost everything. I usually nab her Vogue and Oyster.
