Musing Monday #11



Musing Mondays is a weekly feature hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Each week MizB asks a book related question and we have to give our answers.

This week’s musing asks…


 Do you read magazines? If so, which ones? If not, why not?

Yes I do read magazines, I buy a couple a month.  I love the celebrity gossip ones like Heat, Closer and Now.  It's my pure guilty pleasure.  It always makes me laugh that you can guarantee at the supermarket checkout the serving girl will always have a qick look at the front cover and then make some random comment.  No, I don't always agree with how stories are sourced, they say bad news always travels faster.  I'm always glad that I am not under the scrutiny of the press or the public, it can't be nice and is very intrusive.  But I like to buy these magazine for the entertainment news too not just for the celebrity news.

Books will always be number one in my life, but it is nice to have the odd flick through a magazine.

LOLOL, the gossip magazines are very interesting and amusing, I find myself unable to resist sneaking a peek every time at the supermarket haha! But I do agree that it must be very hard for those who have the "glorious" opportunity on those front covers when their privacy is heavily violated :/ Anyways, I like your answer, and happy Monday!

I used to, but now I'm reading too much books, and don't have any time for magazines :(

I love your answer! The checkout people do tend to comment on the covers.

I used to love reading magazines, but when I realised actually how much of them I fully read and how much they were costing me I realise financially I was better off forgoing a couple of mags and buying a great book instead!
