No - I mean the real thing! Smile

Used to be an avid reader years ago... but very rarely bought a book! Wink

The public library used to be a part of my weekly routine. Not any more but I still wander in there very, very occasionally.

They still have the same books as they did when I was a kid! Lol!! Grin

i used to buy quite a few magazines mainly Practical Photography but these days i tend to not buy mags anymore and just look at their online sites - saves getting piles of magazines building up in my house - i think the only mag i've got recently was the What Digital Camera mag when i had a two page spread in the reader gallery after they saw my photo's on here.
i don't really need to buy mags now because epz has all i need =)

But there is something nice about snuggling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and some Hob Nobs flicking through the glossy pages with all the pretty pictures, it's just not the same sat in front of a PC.

i agree that im missing out on the physical action of flicking the pages but everything else i can have - the pint mug of tea, the pack of chocolate rich tea biscuits and my laptop and a long network cable stretching over to the sofa - i guess what i could do is have some random magazine next to me that i can periodically open and flick the pages to add a touch of realism while viewing the website pages =)
oh i know what i can do - have my epz book next to me as that has glossy pages =)

The only reason for having the magazines is for future reference.

But then, if the same articles are on the internet why not download and save them to your computer for the future?

It was based on this comment. I suggested that it may be a differant publication.

I don't really buy any. But, reading through the thread, a few people have said "Outdoor Photographer" and some have said "OP".

Firstly, the "Outdoor Photographer" people - are you referring to the American publication by that name, or do you mean 'Outdoor Photography'?

And the "OP" people - which of the two do you mean? Obviously Doclassie means Outdoor Photography, because there is a reference to their horrendous 'Trinny and Susannah' style feature.

Nope - I use the web for that. The reason for magazines is:
1: You can read them in the bath.
2: you can read them on the loo
3. You get to see what images look like in print.

'fraid I'm a 'magazineaholic' can't resist them.
I have a regular order for Digital Photo, Digital Camera and have just ordered Outdoor photography.
I also seem to buy every other photography magazine sold in Asda when I do my weekly shop. Only buy AP when it has a good freebee.
Love looking at the pictures sent in to see if any Epeezers are mentioned, and they regularly are. Tell myself each month that I really should submit something but never do.
Pass the magazines on to friends who attend a local camera club and they distribute them to new members.
CD's either get recycled in the local plastics bin or sent off to camera club mentioned above.

Any mag that:

-Doesn't have a shot of bl%%dy Buchaille Etive Mor (how many more can there be!!)

-Doesn't have a letter on the letters page saying 'I just bought your mag and it changed my life blah blah blah'. (How come there's never any letters saying 'your mag is cr*p?)

-Doesn't have a shot of bl**dy Rannoch Moor

-Doesn't have a shot of blurred water at sunset (shutter speed 2 hours!!)

Don't read mags anymore - usually rely on library books.
