I still buy books. But magazines? Only if I'm flying somewhere.

Books are infinitely more enjoyable to me than any electronic counterpart I've yet seen. I will almost certainly never stop reading and purchasing books.

I've subscribed to many magazines over the years, but the only one I ever saw fit to renew (multiple times) was The Economist. In fact, I'd still be subscribing to it if I had the time to read it.

When I fly places, the highlight of my trip is reading the Skymall magazine in Southwest planes.

One day I'm going to order some of that shit

Magazines:

The Economist (subscribed)
The Week (subscribed)
The New Yorker (when I can get a copy)
The Boston Pheonix (free, local paper. I read it cover to cover every week. it just switched from newspaper format to magazine. The Pheonix is the only place that reliably covers shit I'm actually interested in. They provide a trenchant, leftist perspective on local, state and national politics as well. They actually run articles about indy rap! and SFR! David Thorpe, Chris Faraone, and David Bernstein are all awesome writers and I admire them greatly.)

Newspapers:

The New York Times (on occasion)
The Wall Street Journal (on a rarer occasion)

Nothing beats reading shit in print, for me anyways. If I read something online, it doesn't stay in my head. Also I kinda have it in my head to be a journalist so I suppose I have a vested interest in seeing print journalism stagger on.

Yeah, there's no doubt print advertising is being all but completely whiped out, it makes sense..

I've just always been in love with subscriber based, mostly ad free lifestyle publications. It's all about the textures and details. There's just so many possibilities.

These are two of my favorites as of late.
