I need a subscription prescription
I enjoy having a magazine subscription: something fun when you open the mailbox, something to flip through at the gym, and light reading material when I'm too tired to read something more serious.
But what magazine is the one for me? In the past, I really enjoyed my subscription to Bust, but recently I'm finding myself, well, too old for that magazine. Dare I confess, I don't much care about indie music and film anymore? The fashion spreads all strike me as wildly impractical?
I'm currently getting National Geographic, but those just sit there unread, making me feel guilty. I don't have time or interest to read them, much as I wish I did.
Food and Wine is appealing to me, but it tends to give me rich-man envy, wishing I could go to all these swanky foodie resorts and fancy restaurants.
So - here are three options for me. Mary Jane's Farm has a nice attitude and look to it, while Mother Earth News has some serious content that I like. Natural Home seems more urban and has lots of "green design" ads in it. Is one of these the perfect magazine for me?
Any other favorite magazines I should check out? I welcome recommendations!
