15. I used to subscribe to Atlantic, New Yorker, Harper's & The Nation

but no longer do. I still occasionally do the cryptic crosswords in Atlantic, Harper's and The Nation. But only when one of my neighbors leaves an old copy in the laundry room. The New Yorker ran a series of mini-cryptics for a while, but stopped.

I used to buy Henry's Hooks book of cryptics every year, but haven't seen one in a while.

If there was a monthly magazine of cryptic crosswords, I'd probably subscribe.

16. You're ahead of me, Senior Citizen. I think the cryptics are --
-- too hard. It frustrates me and I throw a temper-tantrum : ).

By the way, I like your avatar a lot. It's a good policy.

25. About the only one at the moment is Paste
and I get it mainly for the CD samplers that come with it. It's a pretty good deal, you get a cd with each magazine. This year when I renewed, they also sent me the new Camper Van Beethoven CD (which rocks btw), so you gotta love that!

Oh yeah and I get Billboard free through my business. But I rarely read it anymore.

29. I just subscribed to "Mother Jones"
waiting on my first copy. That's the only one, except for "Smithsonian" which someone sent to us as a gift, and we have no idea who!

I used to subscribe to "Texas Monthly" until they got too repuke-ish.

31. Currently the only subscription I have is 'Motor Trend'.
I like to read about cars if I can't get to sleep. Puts me right out.

I cancelled my subscription to 'The Nation' a few months ago because it seemed that everything in it had already been on DU previously and because you have to take a break from politics at some point.

I had a free subscription to 'Mix' for about 12 years, but they stopped sending it to me. :shrug:

34. Newsweek - usually only read part,
New Yorker - everything except most fiction, Vanity Fair - pretty much all, used to get the Nation, but found I didn't have enough time to do it justice - same with Mother Jones and the Atlantic, Smithsonian, Nat'l G., Natural History.

36. Subscribe: Taste Of Home and Light & Tasty.
Read fairly often: Reader's Digest, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Glamour, Weight Watchers, Self

Buy often: Dell Crossword magazines

I used to get Cooking Light also, but they are SO ad-heavy that it wasn't worth wading through.
