My brother got me a subscription to The Week magazine for Christmas and I’m really enjoying it. While a weekly magazine might seem hard to keep up with it’s fairly thin so it’s doable. I don’t watch the news on TV much (a couple of minutes of CNN on my way out the door in the morning) and I don’t read the paper or news magazines so this is just right for me.
Basically they pick up news stories and opinion pieces from around the country and the world so you get a section of facts then various opinions about that issue. It’s really a good read, I recommend it to anyone & everyone.
I put this in the politics category but it covers everything, even stupid celebrity news (but only a little thank god). There’s even a recipe page where they pick a specific dish, then combine the best features of multiple recipes into one.
