    My nephew is selling magazines as part of a school fundraiser, and I MUST order one even though I don't have time to read the few that I receive now... but you all know the drill!

    I would like to try something new to me. So tell me, what are your favorite magazines and why are they your favorite?

    Thanks!

    Tell us what kind of magazines you already have so that we don't recommend the same ones.

    Ha! All that I receive now is "Family Fun" and a couple of magazines from the "Cricket" group (really great kid's magazines, by the way.) Over the years I have subscribed to "National Geographic" (always a winner but now I buy the CD or DVD sets that they release), "The Economist" (wonderful, but too expensive for my current life), "Cooking Light" (great, but we don't cook much at this point... sad!) I usually order something for my daughter, who has plenty of time to read at her age.
    This time I aim to choose something for myself for a change!

    When I visit friends I practically devour their issues of home, design, garden, farm themed magazines. At home I never sit down long enough to read anything. Still, I would like to support my nephew's fundraiser and perhaps find something that is well written/edited AND has good photographs. I am pretty flexible about the topics.

    So... tell me what YOU love.

    Quote:How about "Hobby Farm"? "Organic Gardening"? "This Old House" magazine? "Martha Stewart Living"?

    For women related issues, how about "Oprah" or "Woman's Day"?

    I think it's great that you might branch out in addition to supporting your nephew's endeavors. Have fun.

    I like Trailrider Magazine and Horse Illustrated. DH and I are trail riders so we like to read about the far away riding spots (so we can plan vacations) and get useful equipment and riding tips. Trailrider is better for talking about the vcation spots. Horse Illustrated has more for circle riders (show people and people that arena ride), but I enjoy the articles about the breed of the month. They even did Haflingers one month!

    As with many of the choices already posted here, my all time favorite won't be listed in the magazine fundraisers. My favorite hands down magazine is backwoods home. http://www.backwoodshome.com

    Along those same lines, Countryside.

    Next, would be most any of the Reiman publications, Country, Country Woman, Taste of Home, Birds and Blooms. Again, doubt you find them in the fundraiser.


    If I had to get a magazine from a fundraiser (I never have before, refuse usually) I guess I would go with a garden magazine. For women's magazines, family circle and woman's day are liveable, ok to read in the DRs office anyways, lol.

    I've canceled both my subscriptions to Mother Earth News and Mary Jane's Farm because they were too, ummm "greenie" for my liking.
