I'm not sure, I have many favorites. But the names of all of them end with .com

Hey, I like sports, always have. Sorry if it offends you. My husband warned me to expect comments, which I knew since I check these enough. Thanks for not disappointing.

Julie Craig 6 years, 9 months ago

I agree Nikki. I always pick SI up in the waiting room of the doctors office. It is full of well written articles and amazing pictures. Love sports!!

Nikki May 6 years, 9 months ago

Yeah. No big deal. People just have stereotypes in their heads.

"autie (anonymous) says… I do not understand. I thought magazines were to be inserted into the weapon, most usually from the underneath."

True enough. I enjoy reading "Colt Industries" on the bottom plate. I have several hundred copies.

"Roadkill Magazine" was a magazine from South Africa devoted mostly to railroad graffiti artists and their works

Were there any recipes for 'Roadkill Stew' in it?

"Left Handed Magazine" is also out of print.

Come on ljworld would you publish comments like this if one of the people you asked on the street responded with smut like this? No you would not, so why do you allow it from these anonymous losers. They think it is funny but all they are doing is making your paper look like a joke.

Used to love the Reader's Digest. It pays to increase your word power, you know. You can also bend the pages & break the spine to form a little Christmas tree. Spray paint it, throw some glitter on there - best 3rd grade art project ever. except maybe for the paper mache moraccas.

The video version of Frankfurter Weekly had this to say about the never ending condiment debate:

Esquire - mine Garden Design -ours Johnny's Seed catalogs - mine Prevention - hers BH&G - hers Kansas Magazine - ours

about the Esquire - read it at the barbershop a few years back, had a really great article so I sent in the card & started taking it. They are so ridiculous. Features lotsa Interesting people, but the mag is pretty much full of itself. They do this automatic renewal roll-over thing. Very sneaky. missed opting out the last two years.

Is it just me, or are magazine subscription renewal letters becoming more and more ridiculous? Earlier this year I paid for a 2-year renewal on a magazine that still had almost two years left on it. About three months later, my wife did the same thing - same magazine. So this subscription is good through something like July of 2017, and I just received another "Your subscription is running out! Renew Now! Last chance!" letter from them last week.

But to answer the question, my favorites have changed over the years. Notable favorites: Hit Parader, Sports Illustrated, Cycle World, Car Craft, and Stereo Review.

Utne Reader. They have great book and music reviews. Their last issue had an article about all the birth defected children in Iraq and Afganistan which caused heated debate in my pro-war family.

Omni - Still have as many as I can get my hands on :)

I used to buy an issue of SOF occasionally when I was younger. One had a pretty graphic picture of someone who had been beheaded - Mom saw it - no more Soldier of Fortune for me.
