If you pick one of the "other" categories... Please consider suggesting a category, and I will consider adding it.

Your answers are editable, so if I add a suitable option you will be free change your answers to reflect that option.

Also, if you feel like sharing your favorite magazines, publications or book publishers...... Go for it.

Added Political / Issues Magazines


Guns... I believe that falls under Outdoor / Hunting / Fishing.

Edit: However, what the hell... there now its a little more specific.
In case there are others with doubts about that category.... you can throw paint ball, police tactics, and military stuff into that category as well...

This is sort of a generalized survey to attract advertisers from certain categories... So, I want to be a little bit broad... Not too broad... but somewhat.

No.  To me, piracy is... a sport, a calling, a way of life...

If I can't download it for free, it's not worth reading.  :twisted:

Those are Entertainment Magazines. I will however add a category for fashion, and for science.
I tried to get science to fall under Technical... but that's probably not good enough.

Between Fashion, Entertainment, and Home / Garden... I think women's magazines are covered.

If you read some sort of Atheist Libertarian Feminist Magazines... That would probably go under Political / Philosophical

I mostly read political books. I'm currently reading The Fountainhead, and I have Johan Norbergs "In Defense of Global Capitalism" and Milton Friedmans "On Capitalism and Freedom" next in line. I started reading the Sword of Truth series, but I got bored at the beginning of the second book.

Keep going, the second book has a really slow beginning... it starts to get much better toward the end... That book has probably the worst beginning of the entire series... If you liked the first book, it's worth continuing. The ending of the second book is pretty good.
