3-0 out of 5 stars Cost is only one of many factors.
Some product reviews (particularly food) in Consumer Reports are out of wack with reality; e.g., how many people purchase mayonaise based solely upon cost per ounce?Taste and nutrition facts, I believe are more important - although they receive no consideration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
I have subscribed for over 3 years now and use the information all of the time!!

3-0 out of 5 stars The virtues and defects of impartiality
Consumer Reports and its parent organization, Consumers Union, can seem a bit schizophrenic at times, which isn't surprising when you consider their mission. On the one hand, their role is to interpose some rationality between the urge to acquire and the products that are marketed to us with every possible appeal. They propose to do this by supplying quality information. On the other hand, they must be neutral, which means they can't editorialize about how stupid and irrational your motives may be, and they can't say anything negative about a consumer economy that is built on exploiting those motives. Thus, if a product makes a false health claim, they may go after it, but if you want to buy a carbon dioxide spewing SUV, then their fondest hope is to help you buy the best big, dumb SUV available. Fair enough: spare me that. I understand the rules of the game. But it does embody a contradiction: lies and tactics on one side of a certain line are ok; on the other, not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Half of My Family is from the South
I have or had aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents strewn all throughout the South. My dad is from Texas. For a New Englander like me that has always been quite a dichotomy. I have traveled and spent time in all 13 Southern states. Ever since grade school we were taught there were 13 Southern states based on those states that seceded from the Union during the Civil War. I am not sure what exactly constitutes Southern State theses days!
5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, I'm partial...I'm from the SOUTH!
So, you want to know where to stay, what to see, what to eat, how to get there, when to come, and who's who in the old South??? Look no further than the pages of "Southern Living," a superb look at everything new and old about the region.
1-0 out of 5 stars Southern Living No Longer "Southern"
As a member of a Southern family who treasured this magazine, it is with a heavy heart and a sense of loss that I have decided not to renew my subscription this year.Yes, I've always given the brides in our family a subscription as a gift, and waited eagerly for my issue to come in the mail.But those days are past.Southern Living Magazine has been offered to all states for some time now, and I believe this has caused the editors to try to appeal to a broader readership.This, in turn, has changed the recipe section into something one can find in any other magazine.Honestly, I do love all sorts of different cuisines, but in a magazine called "Southern Living", I expect to find wonderful and traditional Southern recipes!This magazine needs to go back to it's roots.From now on, I'll be giving new brides a subscription to Southern Lady Magazine, and that's what I'll be reading myself!I will miss the Christmas book, though. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars The best presentation
I love the look of this magazine.Such high quality.The overwhelming amounts of advertisements can be a bit much though.The photography and style is fantastic.They some how make everything from vases to flowers to all foods look compelling and beautiful.

4-0 out of 5 stars good things
Long time MSL subscriber.I get out my dec, dec/jan issues every holiday season to see what works for ornaments and decorations and such.I loved the cookie issue last year, definite keeper.Her projects involve time and materials, but you end up with something that will last, and instructions are generally very clear.I've seen that since her trial/jail, the high end advertisors have almost entirely backed out, which means adds for average joes, like me.I really appreciate the depth that the mag goes into a certain subject, even if its not a particular fave of mine.
4-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous magazine
I'm kind of a homebody -- I love making things, sewing and cooking, and making my home as nice as possible for myself, my kids, and my guests.When I found this magazine, it was love at first sight: crafts, easy sewing projects, home-made decorations and beautifully photographed meals, all in one spectacularly well-put-together magazine.To be honest, I always loved Martha's work but could never stand her show; now I can have all that her show offers (and more) without having to be annoyed by a tv programme.

Wifey and I are always so excited when the new Dwell arrives in the mail.This is the cutting edge of architecture and design magazines, and we are always looking for new ideas and trends in its many colorful and well-photographed pages.A truly great monthly mailer.

4-0 out of 5 stars ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
The images in this magazine are always first rate and the editors get access to houses no one else does.The writing is also very good and the houses chosen for each month are always in varing designs and spectucular.This magazine does have a certain reputation of being on all the coffee tables of the wealthy, but is not Town and Country, it really is a magazine that takes its name seriously and the writers are well informed and have skill.Pick it up sometime, it's worth the effort.

4-0 out of 5 stars House Pornography
In summary, this magazine portrays houses that you can't possibly ever hope to own in an "airbrushed" presentation that can't possibly match real life; it is "house pornography".It is exciting to read and puts plenty of ideas into your head.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine!
I love this magazine.Some reviewers have stated that they disliked some of the interiors.That's fine and fun!I show my husband some of the things (he's a graphic designer) and we have a great time laughing at some of the designs.Other times it's absolutely great.The latest issue (Aug. 2004) is one of the best and the theme is Exotic Homes Around The World, and they are all fantastic.

1-0 out of 5 stars Who dominos?
I've seen three issues of domino, (all free, thanks to the doctor's office - that's me, the frugal felon), and have found nothing to relate to. The spreads are homes of very wealthy people with extravagant taste and resources. Even so, I've never seen anything remotely appealing in the mag. Definitely not my style.(LOOK, she spelled 'definitely' correctly!)

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best new home/gift resource
Great design for home decorators.Great resource for incorporating new ideas, old favorites, and a touch of the different.Resources are clearly identified with prices and ordering information--especially online.It's a new type of home decorating magazine.I love Home and Garden, but Domino is better for resources and ordering.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Reading
If I had to pick just one women's magazine to subscribe to, "Good Housekeeping" would be the one. It has many of the same articles that all women's magazines have: articles on health, fitness, finance, relationships, diet, beauty, and fashion. But "Good Housekeeping" goes beyond the surface in these articles, for example, their fashion articles don't focus just on high-priced clothing, instead they show outfits that look like their expensive counterparts that readers can buy for just a fraction of the cost. There are also advice columnists on things like household hints, etiquette, and relationships. Each issue also has a short story. There's also the seemingly obligatory celebrity on the cover and interview inside each issue.
4-0 out of 5 stars Just want one and this is it
I have received "ladies'magazines" for many years and keep coming back to GH. I am 57, single, have little reading time for pleasure and little interest in or time for walking through stores to keepup with products, new ideas, etc for women. I don't' even spend much time on the net for this information. I like GH's reputation for quality (GH Seal of Approval and assessment of products), the price (it requires ads to sell the magazine at this low price in today's market; GH passes some on to the customer by keeping the subscription cost low), and the timeliness and the variety of topics interesting women.And I enjoy the tidbits of celebrity information without excessively intimate details of their personal lives that have no impact on the reason I enjoy their performances/talent. It's the only "overall" magazine of this kind that addresses things I want to know about on a consistent basis without becoming the same every month, which is something I don't like about many other periodicals.I also enjoy the ads; otherwise, I would never know of foods, beauty aids, cooking techniques and equipment, fashions, shoes, books, etc.I look forward to getting my GH. When topics greatly interest me, I cut and file them. Also, when I finish with one while flying, I can always find another woman who is happy to take it on their flight.

I love this magazine and have just ordered a subscription for my daughter too.Very good value for the money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
I was very disappointed in the magazine when I received it.The pages were cheap feeling, they were thin.The binding was not secure.I have to pinch the middle of the magazine together just to look at the pages or all the pages come out in clusters.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Magazine to Share
I find the Woman's Day magazine a helpful source of information for myself, my family and my friends.As I go through the articles and information in the magazine, I note items of interest for my husband and I (we are retired seniors), and for my daughter who has two children.Since the news that my son and his wife are expecting, I also save information for them.I have tried some of the recipes and were very pleased.Thank you for putting out such a great magazine. ...

Still waiting for my first shipment... I ordered it in december, and I still have not recieved anything.
5-0 out of 5 stars AR is truly the best
Record can be a very provocative magazine that might encourage a person to actually go out and try 'Architecture'.Luckily I am an Architecture Major, but for those who are simply browsing to see which mag they are going to get into next. Trust me you definately want to read this one.It motivates your body, it stimulates the designer inside of each and every one of us; as well as it encourages us to stop by a building and look at it as more than wood or steel put together with nails, but a form of relieving the designers that we all are.You'll learn to appreciate the home that you live in and as well bring out the dream house that we always wanted to life in some instances.From Corbu to FLW to Gerhy or from 'Falling Waters' to the 'Disney Concert Hall' AR will represent the best and only the best.This way we know what is good and what is not.So trust me if it is not in this magazine, it's not what you want to go out and see. ...

As an owner of a wonderful loving pit bull dog, I adore this magazine because every issue there are pit bull faces smiling at me. I love the insightful articles, the wonderful vendors. I love this magazine! Thank you for all you do!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of only 2 subscriptions I won't cancel
I like that The Bark ISN'T a monthly magazine. I usually get sick of a magazine after a while. When another one comes, reading it just seems like something to add to my "to-do" list.
5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!!
I've received and read one issue of The Bark so far. I am amazed at the great pictures of dogs (posed and in action).It's a fun magazine to relax with and enjoy.The articles are well written, and very interesting.I'm glad that I treated myself to this subscription.Usually, I stick with Dog Fancy, The Whole Dog Journal, Your Dog, and Dog World, as they serve the very necessary topics of wellness, what to do/not do, meeting the breed, and much more. The Bark is intelligent and modern. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What Makes This Cooking Mag Different?
I've subscribed to Gourmet, Bon Appetite, even Taste Of Home. What I like about Donna Hay's magazine is that every recipe I liked had a wonderful photo (I'm very visual) and easy to follow directions. It's also not cluttered with a lot of "wine tasting in the valley" type of info or gourmet reviews of things I'll never cook. These mags are keepers and you could even mat/frame some of the photos for your kitchen wall. Remember though, the subscription is for 6 issues a year, not 12. Great gift for that cook you just are out of ideas for!

5-0 out of 5 stars donna hay is excellent!
I enjoy this magazine profusely! It is beautifully stylized,terrific recipes and good for day dreaming too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Donna Hay Magazine, Autumn Issue
I just bought Issue #14 at the local book store and I am very impressed.The photographs are excellent.I assumed the recipes would be long with an exotic ingrediant list but I was pleasantly surprised at their simplicity and that most of the ingrediants were ones I had on hand. Best of all, everthing I've tried so far has tasted great.I did find their publishing schedule a bit confusing as I could not find a date in the magazine and the cover only stated Autumn.I liked it so well I went to a different book store and found Issue #13 as well as cookbooks by Donna Hay. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Info, Bad Ads
I like the information brought forth in this magazine. Some things were relevant, some not (25 steps to cleaning my car is not very relevant). The only gripe I had with this mag is the effluous flow of Viagara and "Better Sex" video ads sprawled throughout the magazine-- I counted SEVEN such ads in one issue! My kids love to read "This Old House" and "Old House Journal," but "Family Handyman" was off limits. Too bad. To the magazine writers: Not EVERY handyman-type magazine reader is a man, and not EVERY magazine reader needs to be bombarded with the same crap that floods my email inbox.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product but Misunderstood Process for Gift
This is the third time I have purchased Handyman Magazine for family members as gifts.This time, I misunderstood how to gift the item.Unfortunately, I did not have a second chance to send the magazine to a family member as a Christmas Gift.After calling, the only recourse I was given was to to refuse the magazine when it comes (because it is coming to me instead of my son in Atlanta), call and cancel the order and reorder.Unfortunately, doing this, it will not reach my son in time for Christmas.I would like to see something built into the system that gives a second chance to bill me, but send as a gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars A bit glossy and "staged", but info and tips are great!
My ONLY gripe with this magazine is that the pictures are like those you would find in GQ magazine: they hire models to show you driving a nail or shoveling dirt for that new patio.These people use only brand new tools (brand name label showing of course) in a perfect-world dust free environment.The pictures make it look like it's a Sears catalogue.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for ideas, but not for "how to" information
If you are looking to do major renovation work in rooms of an older house, then this magazine will give you some ideas, before and after pictures, etc.There is precious little about minor jobs, improvements and fixes you may make on an older house.There is a lot of showcasing new and expensive top of the line stuff. My needs are more simple.I want information on fixing and improving things in my house.I am not a professional contractor.For the major stuff, I will hire someone. I have subscribed for three years but find that there is only one or two pages in each issue that can help me.Their TV show "Ask this old house" is much more informative.For magazines, I am going to try "Family Handyman" magazine instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Home-improve'ers!
This magazine keeps me coming back for more. Each month might not have something I can use but inspires me to do more and do things myself!!1

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this one.
This is a magazine for paid product-placement in articles, tons of ads, and so-so articles.You are paying for the name, and getting much less in return.

Like "Where's Waldo", it seems every issue must have at least one, if not several Mies van der Rohe daybeds.While this is admitedly a classic piece of furniture, one gets the impression that there are a gaggle of designers telling their clients, "You have to have one of these, they're what's IN!"Most of the features in Metropolitan Home suffer from the same fate; dreary antiseptic homes with the same dreary interiors that obviously were foisted upon gullible, uninformed clients by designers who know how to make an easy buck."Modern" equals, of course, a Mies van der Rohe daybed (notice how many times it shows up in this review?), otherwise you get month after month of 1970's florals, faux Louis the Whatever tables.Even using feature extraction, wading through the dreck and finding something useable for your own purposes, it's painful to look through this magazine.If you really want ideas for making your house reflect you, trust yourself and what YOU like, and if you do like Mies van der Rohe daybeds, by all means get one.Just don't plunk one in your sun room because you were told it's trendy. If you like the Modern style, look up the works of Hans Wegner and Peter Hvidt and go from there; their furniture still looks stylish after 50 years of hard use by real families and is sturdy as well.Maybe you want a house where nobody is allowed to set foot in any of the rooms and amounts to a bad hodge-podge of styles that all seem a bit busy and bumpy.For everyone else, think about the things you'd like to see if you walked into a room, save your money and skip this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Contemporary Aesthetic In Home Design
I subscribe to many magazines, but of all the magazines I receive every month, my two favorites are "Dwell" and "Metropolitan Home," which both focus on the contemporary aesthetic in home design, renovation, and decorating. "Metropolitan Home" is my preferred magazine for decorating related tips, while I rely on "Dwell" more for renovation and design ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly pleased
I have enjoyed Fine Gardening for a year so gave it to myself for Christmas. It's helpful to re-read past magazines as something new pops out to me each time. Great to keep for reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Stars from a Landscape Designer
I do landscape design and landscape maintenance professionally, and this is the only magazine I'd recommend to clients. As another reviewer noted, The American Gardener is also a fine publication if you are very serious about plants, but for most readers, Fine Gardening best walks the line between accessability and having great information.
4-0 out of 5 stars My second favorite gardening magazine.....
I have subscribed to FINE GARDENING for several years, and the only real problem I've encountered is where to house back issues. I have also subscribed to a number of other "gardening" magazines, most of them dropped after the initial subscription period. The exceptions have been THE AMERICAN GARDENER (my favorite gardening magazine) and FINE GARDENING.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cottage, Not Country -- Style Galore
Finally a magazine that knows cottage. Cottage isn't country, although it can have some of those elements. It isn't necessarily small, but it can be. It doesn't necessarily mean old, though it can be. Country can be modern and hip or antique and traditional. Above all, it's casual and comfortable. It's a place you want to come home to. It's a feel, an ambiance, a flair for putting things together that don't come in room-to-go packages from furniture store decorators. I especially like the various styles presented in each issue -- ultra modern, traditional, log cabin, seaside, California contemporary, etc. and the monthly comparison of styles in one furniture grouping. It allows you to grab ideas from the entire spectrum of cottage style and to mix and match for yourself. I also like how easy the how-to advice is to follow. From paint advice to luscious gardens to interesting food, this magazine has it all. The accompanying website is great. Products and paints are easy to find. I've banished all the other decorating magazines from my subscription list.

5-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't everyone want a cottage?
This is my favorite home/decorating/architecture magazine of all time.Perhaps it is a fortuitous coincidence, but "Cottage Living" always features homes in areas of the country that are very interesting to me - like the Adirondacks, Boulder CO, Arlington VA, Asheville NC and New Orleans.The editors have a good understanding of cottage admirers and their interests.Therefore, they include floor plans, before & after pictures, and brief back-stories that give us a glimpse into the life of the cottages and of their inhabitants.
