Default How do you react when a magazine arrives...

I subscribe to HOT ROD and Car And Driver, and used to subscribe to Car Craft (might resubscribe)

I love getting a new magazine in the mail. I know it'* going to be a great day when I get it.

I also have to remind myself not to forget the mail....

I hated it. For some reason my subscriptions always seems to arrive well after they were out on store shelves. Most times they were already read by the time they came.

I always got rid of the "drop-out" cards and ripped out all of the ones that were bound inside and THEN started to read it

It seems like I get a new one everyday. I'm subscribed to Car & Driver, Motor Trend, Popular Mechanics, PC magazine.

Got mine Friday.

I get em all free somehow cause I work in an office. Not sure how i got into it, but I occasioanlly get offers for free mags.

I get stuff that I dodn't even care about, but for free, I'll take em.I get about 6 or 7 different subscriptions . I love it when all of them come.

I LOVE getting my new issue of JP (it'* a Jeep magazine) but even better than that is when the new Jeep Essentials or 4Wheel Drive catalogs come.

Do you like muscle cars? If so you would love Hemmings Muscle Machines.

I get excited when I get my two magazines, but it seems I don't make the time to read the one too much. I like to read a while before bed. HMM has a great auction section that is pretty funny (they list a couple dozen cars and evaluate them based on the car and the bid) that I like to read after any Oldsmobile articles.
