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?

The New Yorker, The Economist, MAKE, Esquire, Sunset, Sports and Exotic Cars by Hemmings, Scientific American. I also get Scouting magazine because I'm a Scoutmaster, but I confess I don't read it.

National Geographic Digital editions is included with paper subscription or a monthly $1.99 for Digital only. My Wife likes the paper edition of NG better.

Books and Culture - a tabloid sized magazine similar to the New York Times Review of Books. I love the aesthetic of reading it spread out on the kitchen table like a map and being able to circle authors and references on that thirsty newsprint paper. And it's strangely satisfying to rip out a page for handing off to a friend. (And it's available digitally if I'd rather send a link.)
