one bad thing about being a humanities student now rather than engineering is all of the ridiculous reading that must transpire in a given night. ย the page count usually tops 100, and it could be on anything from sweet potato farming to Salem witch trial testimonies. ย not that I'm really complaining, but it's putting a serious dent in the reading that I like to do: magazines!

for over 10 years now, I've subscribed to a number of paper reads. ย I'll never switch to electronic - I just enjoy flipping page after page of beautiful spreads and interesting interviews way too much.

some of my favorites:


Teen Vogue





Ready Made

Real Simple




...and yes, I subscribe to most of them. ย however, I figure I save money because I'm not impulsively grabbing stacks of them at the checkout and paying $5+ for just one issue.

what are your monthly reads? and do you still like to buy the printed edition?
