Magazine Junkie


I love to read. In fact, just had book club with the girls last night (we read "South of Broad" by Pat Conroy). Books will always be my first love, but magazines are my constant companions.

I think I subscribe to about 20 magazines. What I don't receive in my mailbox at home I usually read second-hand from someone else, or while getting the hair or nails done. This can be a bit of a problem when you're perusing the shelves at the airport book store for a good distraction and realize you already have read/seen every single issue.

Of course I lean heavily toward fashion and interiors, but I do get magazines that I can actually read, and my dad passes on his copies of The New Yorker to me when he's done.

Just got my copy of W in the mail today. I like W because it is quite different from most fashion mags (larger format, bizarre photography...) but I just LOVED this issue. There was an amazing 20 page spread just on the Spring '10 fashion lines alone. I was like a kid in an eye-candy store. This one is a keeper and will not be making the rounds to female friends, or the recycle bin.

I'm a junkie too. Alas, I feel that all the best ones have gone out of publication. Domino was my favorite and I haven't found anything to replace it. Any suggestions?

Wow, do I have a fashion rag subscription. I don't even know how many I subscribe to. It's bad. Ah ha ha

I so use to be a magazinaholic too. Lately I have found less and less time to read...I think this blogging has totally replaced my habit. Oh I still get them but not nearly as many. Have a Wonderful Christmas my friend...filled with peace...love...joy....family and friends.
