- #3 Vanity Fair - a good read while waiting at the doc's.
- #6 New York - LOVE this one, though I've never picked up the hardcopy. Their website (www.nymetro.com) is excellent and practically the entire mag.
- #33 Chronicle of Higher Education - great resource for keeping abreast of hot topics and trends in higher ed
- #34 UsWeekly - Ok, so it the prime example of this society's obsession with celebrities, but it can be pretty funny too. And at least it's not InTouch.
Some magazines that I enjoy reading but not deemed worthy of the list:
- Self - I think that this women's magazine does a pretty good job of promoting healthy living and self-image, although it is still a CondeNast publication and therefore reeks of mass-consumerism. I personally think the advertisements contribute most to Self's mixed messages.
- Jane - this irreverent, semi-feminist mag appeals to my non-conformist, tongue-in-cheek side.
- Budget Living - if you know me, you understand why I like this one. However, I do find that some of their "budget" item suggestions a little much (e.g. a $25 glass-cutting board?) and that it has a more sub-than-urban feel to it.
- Glamour - One of my guilty pleasures. More pop-culture-friendly than Self, less blatantly salacious than Cosmopolitan.
- Martha Stewart Living - another guilty pleasure. Great recipes, quick crafts, and information on random "good things" (like how to pick out good produce). This is obviously a product of my brainwashing as a child to want to be a domestic goddess. Oh wait, that's just b/c I have Asian parents! j/k!
