Still reading magazines?

March 19, 2009
Even with talk of the demise of print journalism, many of us still turn to magazines not just for information, but for pleasure. After all, you don't see any Kindles being sold at supermarket check-out lines.

And so while they don't have the high-profile status or consumer impact as the Oscars or the Tonys, I thought I'd let you know today of the nominees for the National Magazine Awards.

In the category of General Excellence, the nominees are broken down by circulation, thus avoiding David v. Goliath battles. Here are the nominess:

Circulation under 100,000
The American Scholar; Aperture; Bidoun; Print; The Virginia Quarterly Review

Circulation 100,000 - 250,000
Foreign Policy; Los Angeles Magazine; Mother Jones; Paste; Time Out New York

Circulation 250,000 - 500,000
The Atlantic; Backpacker; New York; Texas Monthly; W

Circulation 500,000 1,000,000
The Economist; Fast Company; GQ; Runner's World; Wired

Circulation 1,000,000 2,000,000
Bon Appétit; Field & Stream; The New Yorker; Popular Science; Vogue

Circulation over 2,000,000
Martha Stewart Living; National Geographic; Reader's Digest, Real Simple, Time

Are any of these on your regular reading list? Do you still read them in print or look to what's available on line?

And are there others that you think deserve to be in their company? (Note: Indy-based Emmis Communciations has two pubs, Los Angeles Magazine and Texas Monthly, in the running.)
