No. I asked one of my students this and was in awe of his answer, they are "rubbish." I totally agreed. We spoke further and decided that not all magazines are rubbish, but that the general gossip ones certainly are.
Really! She loves this sort of stuff, though our (her) house very much reflects a sea side theme. Her bedroom is French Provincial looking. White furniture, paintings on the wall. I think you would like it. Perhaps I'll share pictures.
No,I think magazines are just far too expensive to buy,so the only time I read them is when I am waiting for medical appointments!! My Dr's
surgery has very up-to-date issues of many of the 'gossip' type magazines,and so I figure I may as well indulge while I am sitting there waiting to be seen!! Many years back I would sometimes buy ABC's Garden magazine and the very good American Beading magazines when I knew they had articles I wanted to read and learn from;but I even stopped buying those as after a while they simply were reprinting old articles under new headings!!! I just decided to buy the ones I did not have,and wished to read, at the Op Shops! But that was a long while ago.....
I cannot recall the last time I did this!
No. Magazines don't interest me. I would rather read a book !!! Maybe once a year I will buy a ' Better Homes and Gardens ' magazine, if there is a recipe or gardening article that interests me. When I used to belong to Weight Watchers, I would buy their magazine. When I left there I stopped buying it. It did have some recipes in it that were good. So, no I don't buy magazines regularly.
I have tried but can't remember the last time I bought any magazine . . . must be 10 to 15 years ago. (Never was a big buyer) Everything is on the internet these days, you can get your celebrity gossip hot off the press, news on tap, recipes, funny anecdotes, heartwarming dog stories . . . . ah, *bliss*
I read 'Yours' magazine regularly because a friend hands it on after she and her mother in law have read it. I don't read it cover to cover but pick out the articles of interest. I particularly enjoy Wendy Harmer's column as it makes me laugh.
I forgot that I always read the ones at the dentist, once a year!. (I know I should go twice a year!) And we also take the Qantas magazines from the plane to read later, as we fly to & from Melbourne, 4/5 times a year. It would be easier if we flew down at the end of the month, & returned at the start of the following month, then we could pick up 2 in 1 trip! (We're always down there for 7 days,) but it never works out that way!
I know what you mean, Diana, When I bought the WW's, )way back in the mid '60's,) I'd rip all the ads out, if they were on both sides of the page, before I started reading it. It also made the WW a little lighter to carry!!!
