Magazines on paper may be dying, but they aint dead yet. I am down to five paper subscriptions (from my high of about 50 in the late 90s). Every now and then I check the newsstands and the library looking to see if I am missing something. What are some magazines worth subscribing to on paper?

To answerers of this question: I'd be very curious to know why it's better in paper form than in electronic?

Wired, Road & Track, Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car, Popular Mechanics. I still enjoy dog-earing a page to ref back to, sharing an issue with a friend, and building my collection of HS&EC for garage reference.
