Weekly Geeks #10: Magazines

I couldn't resist joining in this week's Weekly Geeks about magazines - I love them! I actually have to consciously make sure that I control my magazine habit because it gets so expensive - English-language magazines are so expensive here!

The magazine I read regularly, i.e. I buy it pretty much every month, is BBC Good Food - full of recipes, ideas and food news. I love cooking and I have another blog about cooking and food, but I don't update that nearly often enough. I must get on that actually. Anyway, Good Food is really great - the recipes range from simple and quick to more elaborate so I'll always find something I want to make. They have a great website too, registration is free and they have a fantastic recipe collection on there. But I still buy the magazine, nothing beats sitting down with a cup of coffee and the new issue on a Saturday afternoon!

Through Melody's Weekly Geeks post, I found Bookmarks magazine. I hadn't heard of it before, but it looks amazing. I'm considering subscribing to it - perhaps I'll forego my monthly allowed Amazon order in August and subscribe to Bookmarks instead!

Nothing beats good food and books IMO, Joanna! ;) I'm thinking of subscribing to Bookmarks too, although I've already subscribed to another books-related magazine: RT Book Reviews, but this is focused more on the romance/romance suspense genre.

Bookmarks is one of my favorite magazines. Well worth the $$.
