Booking Through Thursday 2

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer.

This weeks question is:

Even I read things other than books from time to time … like, Magazines! What magazines/journals do you read?

I don't read magazines or journals, I do skim read national and local newspapers once in a while but that's it. Back when I was in college and university I read Heat magazine religiously. Heat is a weekly celebrity/entertainment magazine, it used to come out every Tuesday so I used to trundle off when I had a free study period and get it. First I used to skim read it during the day and then properly cover to cover at night. I came to the realisation after about six years that maybe I was a little addicted to Heat magazine. I used to have a slight flip out when I couldn't get my hands on it immediately so I decided to give it up. Complete cold turkey, just stopped buying it, best decision I ever made. Looking back it was pretty much a waste of money anyway because you could get the info in the magazine off the internet. But still it hurt to give it up and I still stare longingly at it when I walk past the magazines in the shop. But on the brightside it gave me more time and money to spend on books.

That's all for now.
