  • 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?

Small craft advisor. The only NA magazine catering to small sail and oar powered boat. From Port Townsend. Watercraft. UK magazine on the same thing as Small Craft Advisor. Interesting content such as the electric boat section (including battery drill powered boat - fun contest) Woodenboat. Simply delicious to read.

Maximum PC, National Geographic,Guitar World, Guitar world in paper form because of the Guitar tablature. Maximum PC Digital subscription cost extra. 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.)
