Growing up, magazines were everywhere. I’d pick them up, flip through them – my mom says I pretended to read them before I could read – but they never hooked me. They still haven’t. Through the years, I’ve subscribed to industry magazines for work, to things like Wired, and to various writerly magazines to keep up with what’s going on in publishing – but I have to say – I have zero drive to read them.
My mom gets a billion magazines and goes through them cover to cover like a rabid wildebeest feasting on its prey. Maybe the magazine gene skips a generation?
What about you – do you read magazines? Which ones and why?
