Your Favorite Magazines

Missy, here. And I've had two nice surprises. Two new magazines have started being delivered to my home--anonymously!

Woman's Day.

And Reader's Digest.

What's strange, is that I thought the first Reader's Digest was a sample, them sending me one to try to reel me in. But now, I suddenly received a second magazine. I think someone bought me a gift subscription! Did it happen to be any of you? :)

Okay, so I did call my mom and dad and ask if they sent me the Woman's Day. And yes, they did. I have a feeling the magazine sent a letter announcing the gift subscription, and I tossed it, thinking it was junk mail. Maybe I should call my parents back and ask about the Reader's Digest. :)

I recently blogged about picking up a copy of Guideposts Magazine at the hair salon. I've decided to subscribe. I was very inspired by the articles.

Do you regularly read any print magazines? Are there any you read on a Nook, iPad or other e-reader?


  1. I still don't have an e-reader so I still subscribe to the print magazines. I still like to hold the magazine in my hand, like the actual book. I see the good purpose in the e-readers but I'm not there yet!

    As far as my subscriptions go, I get Woman's Day, Better Homes and Gardens and a third I can't remember right now :(

    I've also subscribed to Country. Country has a lot of beautiful pictures and stories about small town life, life on farms, etc.

    I like to peruse the other magazines, like US Weekly and the beauty magazines, while I'm standing in line at the grocery store, but I quit subscribing to those a while back - just no time to read them.

  2. Christy, thanks for suggesting Country. That sounds like good research for my stories! :)

  3. I love looking at cooking magazines. Finding recipes that I don't make is always helpful. :)

  4. Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


  5. I am a magazine junkie! I get Good Housekeeping, Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Proverbs 31, Writer's Digest and The Writer. That doesn't count the ones I buy while waiting in the check-out line. The other day, I found myself about to buy a Brides magazine. I have now forbidden myself from looking at any magazines while I wait.

  6. LOL, Edwina! I used to be a junkie, too. But I don't think I ever picked up a Bride magazine. ;)

    Lindi, I love magazines for recipes! I have a corner of the kitchen with probably hundreds of recipes torn out and stacked. I really need to get them organized.

  7. A SIL gave me Good Housekeeping last year...I enjoyed it. Since I love to read LI books and other Christian books so much, I don't subscribe to any magazines at this time. Most of them have too many advertisements in them...even Guideposts which I subscribed to for years! lol

  8. Well, Jackie, you know I'd rather you read books!! :) We appreciate you!

  9. What a nice gift, Missy--one that keeps on giving. I laughed aloud when you said you probably tossed unopened the gift announcement as junk mail. I did that last year with a charitable receipt! I've never tried magazines on my Ereader, but I do read a lot more books with it. As for magazines...I have, oh...about five back issues of the RWA magazine still in their cellophane! I guess I'm with Jackie :)

  10. I have a pile of RWR's also! I sometimes read one or two articles when it arrives and then save for later. :)
