What magazines do you read?

Post by SeiUsa » Sat May 06, 2006 3:56 pm

Call me a girly-girl if you want, but I love reading teen magazines, such as Seventeen, ElleGirl, and CosmoGirl (they have a cute manga called 'The Adventures of CG!'). And I love reading parenting magazines, hehe, even though I don't have kids and won't for a long time. It's just interesting to read about the life of parenting, and the cute baby pictures are a plus.
And the National Geographic. Been 'reading' that one since grade school. ^_^
So what magazines do you like to read?

"Snakes say sss."
"Lions chase people."
And of course…”Tigers bite you.”

I read Newtype USA religiously. I also get the Manga Magazine from Tokyopop (it's free, you can go to the website to sign up for it if you want to get it). I don't read magazines much more than that, though.

For my fashion design class, we have a lot of projects where we have to tear out pictures of clothes and write analysis' of them, so my teacher recommends that we buy lots of magazines to get the pictures from.

I get In Style magazine. It's about $6 and has a couple hundred pages each issue. I also like how most of the people in it are actors and muscians, so they're celebrities I know. It's hard for me to stay interested and read about foreign models I've never heard of. And lots of the advertisements are very beautiful.

Which magazines do I like reading? Discover Magazine, Archeology Magazine, and National Geographic. I only have a subscription to Discover, though. I had thought about getting Shounen Jump, but since I only really read Yuuhaku, I didn't see the point in buying the magazine and the graphic novels.

Other than those, I usually like flipping through catalogs for medieval weaponry and military surplus. But those don't count as magazines... they're just full of a bunch of neat stuff I want. Like steel vambraces and laser flashlights. *drooool*

I really only read Game Informer. I love video games although I lack a game system with good games on it and the magazine is pretty funny.

I don't read many magazines, but the occasional times I do, I enjoy Cosmo, Maxim, FHM, Redbook, and Animerica.

NewType, Animerica, Heavy Metal.
"Oh yeah. Someone is definitely tired of breathing." ("The Main Man", Part 1)

I'm writing this Sailor Moon/Green Lantern crossover AU fic called "Emerald Sunrise". It's a hybrid of Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi, Romance, and Comedy. It's about Ami (Sailor Mercury) getting a new boyfriend who just happens to be a member of The Green Lantern Corps. I'm also throwing in some other characters from other animes and some old Hanna-Barbera cartoons from the late '60's early '70's. I'm also illustrating it as well. :oops: Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.

Since I'm all mommyfied now, I read Parent & Child, Redbook, Working Mother, and the occasional Parenting if I can get my hands on it.

I also still indulge in the trashiness that is Cosmo, though. XD

I read a couple of American Baby, becuase they're at my doctor's office, and they have several copies, so sometimes I take one.
