I just enjoy lying on the couch and reading a magazine – David Sedaris.
I heard earlier this year that another magazine bit the dust in Australia. This time it was Grazia that is not going to be published anymore. This isn’t a publication that I ever read. I lamented the fact when Notebook hit the dust in Australia as I really liked the format and the magazine in general.
I absolutely love reading magazines. Perhaps it is genetic, as my grandfather loved reading National Geographic.
I am amazed by the number of magazines that are present here on offer in WH Smith (a British retailer known for selling newspapers, magazines, books, stationery and entertainment products). Each of the ones that I have picked up and had a look at appear to have their own individual focus or theme.
My parents got me a gift subscription of Red Magazine for my birthday and I love taking my time pouring over the pages. Red Magazine is a publication that has an interesting selection of articles aimed at women typically between 25-45.
Here are some of the titles that I have purchased over the past 12 months.
As you can see it is an interesting selection. Sussex Life is there as I wanted to learn a bit more about the area where I am based. Italia and A Place in the Sun are there to fuel my love of Italy and far away places, as is the Lonely Planet Traveller.
Do you have a favourite magazine? Or do you prefer to curl up with a book? Or like me, do you love both?
