The New Yorker (1-year auto-renewal)
Founded in 1925, The New Yorker hardly changed for its first 60 years, both in its dry, type-heavy design and in its reputation as a writer's and reader's haven. In 1987 it was on only its second editor when management decided to shake things up. A rocky decade ensued, but The New Yorker is now back at the top of its game under David Remnick's editorship. Each issue offers commentaries and reporting on politics, culture, and events, with a focus that's both national and international; humor and cartoons; fiction and poetry; and reviews of books, movies, theater, music, art, and fashion. Several times a year special issues focus on a theme--music, fashion, business. The writing is mostly first-rate, frequently coming from top literary and journalistic talents. The New Yorker's weekly issues can seem overwhelming--so much good stuff to read, piling up so fast!--but it's as easy to dip in for a small snack as it is to wade in for a substantial meal.
Week after week, The New Yorker keeps its reader current. Subscribe now and don't miss the New Yorker's famous fiction and poetry, book and film review, its incisive looks at politics, people and the way we live, and of course, those CARTOONS. In-depth reporting, surprising opinions, sharp wit, the best in prose, poetry, and the visual arts can all be yours for just $1 an issue!
The Kvarner region geographically extends into
Istria and consists of a coastal area and islands along with
the mountainous part region. The Kvarner region is characterized by its special climate to which it owes over 150
years of tradition for elite and health tourism. Places like
Pula will satisfy even the most demanding
guests with their luxurious style, while the city of carnivals
- Rijeka and nearby places guarantee a good time all year round.
Tourism in the Kvarner region is active all year-round and everyone is invited to participate in the
local manifestations, so come and be a part of the carnival parade, pick asparagus, go fishing or enjoy the magic of
wellness. All of the above are reasons to come again and again.
Texas Monthly has been the authority on the Texas scene since 1973, covering music, arts, travel, restaurants and events with its insightful recommendations. Above all, Texas Monthly provides its readers with a magazine of the highest editorial quality, a standard that has earned it 9 National Magazine Awards, the industry's most coveted prize.
I agree with some of what all the other reviewers have stated. I, too, am a Texas native who has subscribed for nearly 15 years (and read my father's for 10 years before that) and have seen the mag's quality ebb and flo. As copy Kat states, the magazine doesn't seem to know who its target audience is (i.e. upscale, politically savvy, middle-or-the-road, city dweller/suburban, etc.) The political and investigatory writing is still top-notch. This state has a lot of problems and the magazine does not try to simply gloss them over. However, some (ok, many) of the 'fluff' pieces leave me wondering why they were included in the first place. Like ducks quat, I also dislike having to stop an article in mid-paragraph to hunt down the continuation on page 97.
I travel throughout the state and appreciate the restaurant reviews and cultural 'to-do' lists. I also enjoy the mix of current and historical events. I also very much like Kinky Friedman's Last Roundup (I think I'm in a minority,
who). The annual Bum Steer Awards are usually worth the subscription price alone.
Celebrating everything southern, Southern Lady brings you beautiful table settings, home d cor, family entertaining ideas, and recipes that will make your mouth water!
Every time I get Southern Lady, it's like springtime any part of the year. The photographs are so beautiful! It includes articles on decorating, food, fashion and stories of southern women and just a general positive appreciation of life in general. No horoscopes, male bashing, scantily clad models or errant life advice - just uplifting articles and photographs.
My absolute favorite part of the magazine are the articles about women who are entrepreneurs and fortunately, there are at least two articles like that in EVERY issue. I get so excited about that part of the magazine. If they ever drop those type articles, I will drop the magazine. But I don't think they will because I think those women make the magazine special and set it apart... especially because the articles do not mention any of the financial gain of the women, just their love of doing what they do.
