Why Magazines are the Best Form of Literature

By on Apr 11, 2014 in Books and Magazines

Let’s face it; if you are taking one form of literature to a Desert Island it’s a magazine.  Here are five reasons you should always have a magazine around. Special Interest=Super Interesting Most magazines have a special interest of some sort, Sports Illustrated for example or People.  If you are interested in that topic likely is you will be reading that magazine, and will get topical information.  Magazines are geared towards special interest in ways other forms of literature cannot be. Pictures! Sometimes it can be nice to have pictures with the words.  Not that we can’t understand what’s being said, but it’s fun to have something else accompany the story.  A lot of award winning, and world famous photographs have come from the pages of magazines, where would those pictures be if not for magazines? A New One Every Week/Month Whenever you get bored of a magazine, it’s around the time that a new one arrives to provide you with new reading materiel.  Magazines are constantly replenishing, and if you have a subscription, they are always the best things to get in your mailbox (unless you are a fan of menus and bills).  When that new magazine that replaced your old one becomes mundane, then another one comes right in to replace it! Compact If you take public transport to work, it can be really difficult to carry around a book in your bag to read during your commute.  Magazines on the other hand, provide the perfect balance of materiel and size: allowing them to easily slip into your bag without adding extra weight.  This of course brings us to the last point. Bathroom Reader What would the human bathroom experience be without the presence of a magazine?  They make magazine racks for bathrooms for a reason! For more of these literary delights, visit your local newsstand or go through services such as The National Magazine...

Are you a fledgling or veteran bibliophile looking to bolster your national publishers exchange collection? If so, then I’ve got some good news for you. Expensive publications that would formerly cost you an arm and a leg, can be found as cheap as free, thanks to the world wide web. Illustrious titles, such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal Magazine, Shape, Seventeen, Outdoor Life, and many, many more can all be found online with the click of a mouse. Thanks to the internet, there’s never been a better time to find your favorite publications, and save a bundle in the process. For today’s voracious reader on the go, online magazine subscriptions are nothing short of a godsend. When it comes to buying online versus off the newsstand, the savings available to you, the consumer, are simply astronomical. Magazine titles that would cost you up to five dollars a pop in person, can be bought or subscribed to online for a fraction of that. Suppose you had intended to buy a magazine that costs five dollars at the newsstand, but instead subscribed online for twenty dollars. That yearlong subscription would be saving you over fifty dollars when compared to buying in person, and that’s nothing to sneeze at. With the money you saved by subscribing online to your favorite magazine, you could afford two more subscriptions entirely! Not only is the price less, but many magazine companies also offer fun bonuses when purchasing online. Best of all, magazines ordered online will be delivered straight to your doorstep, so there’s no need to engage in a wild goose chase trying to track down your favorite publications. Although print media has suffered a few setbacks due to the digitization of media, the magazine industry is far from out of the race. In fact, many publications are offering free subscriptions, as a method of advertising. By keeping abreast of the market fluctuations, you could wind up scoring a free subscription to just about any magazine that your heart may desire. Many success stories of lucky magazine aficionados involve them two, three, sometimes even four subscriptions, just for being in the right place at the right time. If that’s not enough to whet your...
