Follow Friday: Favorite Magazines

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What are some of your favorite magazines? 

I must confess that I don't read many magazines, and when I do, they aren't generally very bookish. Because I was going to go into the science field for a lot of years, I got into the habit of reading National Geographic, especially issues that dealt with the human body.


I also used to read Archaeology Magazine, because I love history, and stories. I even took an archaeology class in college. It was great, though I don't think I could do it as a career.

I don't read either of those much anymore, though. Over that past few years, the only magazine I've read very faithfully is EW Magazine. I love reading about what new films are in the making and what TV stations are planning for next year's lineups. In my defense, EW has a book reviews section. They tend to be very literary or written by already-famous people, but I still read them every week and add one to my TBR list every so often.

So, what magazines to do you love?

  9. I used to love OMNI. They relaunched as a website!

  10. I have seen EW on quite a few of these, think I may have to look at that. I love finding out about up and coming TV shows and movie releases. Sounds like the kind of magazine I would actually enjoy.

  12. Hey those are some cool looking magazines. I'm not really into magazines anymore. I stick with books mostly. I'm an old follower with a new blog name.

  13. Ooh you read heady stuff. I like Sunset Magazine (for the west region of the US), Oprah because I can always find some good quote to snip and envy all the published writers, and Prevention Magazine, because I pretend that just be reading it, I'm a bit healthier. I used to like MaryJane's Farm too-- because it helped me connect with my inner farm girl.

  14. When I was in high school I read a lot of these special issues on all kinds of topics: pop-psychology, history, religion - I don't discriminate ;)
    These days my Mum's the one who hangs on to those old issues. Although the scientific ones are no doubt out-dated by now.

    Cheers, Katarina :)

    PS. I'll follow you via bloglovin #FF

  15. I do enjoy Nat Geo. I love science and history. I took an archeology class in college too and really wanted to go on a dig, but it never happened. Have a great weekend!
