  • Periodicals?

    I picked up two S&T magazines this afternoon.
    • Strategy and Tactics
    • Sky and Telescope




    That got me thinking about the reading habits of our members.

    Do you still read magazines? [Outside of the dentist's waiting room that is.]
    Do you subscribe to any periodicals?
    Do you have a favorite?

    "Amateur Photographer," I'd also like, "Scale Aircraft Modelling," and, "Britain at War," (thumb through them at the newsagents' if I've got time to kill) to be taken into consideration.
    Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

      I purchase six model railroading magazines per month. The two most important, which I purchase by subscription, are The Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette, and N Scale. The latter is devoted entirely to the scale in which I work 1:160. The other contain articles and photographs of interest which I keep for reference usage.

      The only bookstore in the Canon City-Florence area does not carry ACG. Probably waaay to cerebral for the locals, who prefer Guns and Ammo.

      I do my historical and other non-fiction reading through the local libraries.





      The covers, BTW, are of actual layouts and models.

        I leafed through some magazine at the VA last year (or two years ago) and, I think FDR was man of the year.

              I glance through my association newsletter, which is an a magazine format and a dozen pages long. I get three professional periodicals my agency pays for.

              Otherwise, it has been years since I had a magazine subscription. I don't even get the newspaper anymore.

                  I get many magazines a month by subscription. The oldest subscriptions I have are to Armor Magazine and Strategy and Tactics. I get several magazines over the counter as well. Some come monthly, some are bi-monthly and a couple are quarterly! I really like my Medieval Warfare and Ancient Warfare. I get them from the Netherlands. I also get an interesting one called Ancient Americans. Some issues are better than others! I get about five or six from History Net.

                  The bad news is I don't throw any away!

                    Given that some serious bulletins are quarterly - monthly consumption is a little misleading

                      I give the Navy Reserve magazine a quick look for pictures to hang in my classroom, but sometimes they end up in a pile and do several months at once. I rarely read the American Legion magazine, and can't even tell you how often it comes. The volume of mail I get is overwhelming, so I start with one quick review and throw anything that doesn't look essential to maintain my credit, pay my bills, or stay on top of my health insurance. Its rare that anything in the mailbox is a welcome sight.

                        Popular Science, American Rifleman, Smithsonian. Used to do National Geographic but they got too political for my liking...

                          Understood. That's why I split type vs frequency in the poll. I get Military History Quarterly and occasionally Modern War, a bi-monthly.

                            I don't subscribe to magazines anymore since I had to cut costs when I got laid off, I used to subscribe to Military History, Military Heritage, WWII, and Armchair General. I never subscribed to Strategy & Tactics but it's always been a favorite of mine as well.

                            Every so often though I will go down to my local Barnes & Noble and check out some magazines, maybe buy a few if they look interesting. Quite frankly I am surprised that more of these magazines don't move towards an e-viewing/online subscription.

                              I still get medical journals from time to time, depending on which subscription list they look at. JAMA and JAAPA.
