As an automotive enthusiast, I am of course drawn to most things motoring or automobile related almost instantly; as if it is a part of my natural instincts. Last month, I saw one of those ‘super deals’ on car magazine subscriptions offering 12 months of magazines for $5. I thought to myself “$20 will get me 4 subscriptions to 4 different car magazines!” and so I jotted my name down and signed up. Car & Driver, Road & Track, Motor Trend, and Automobile Magazine.
Now it seems regular that my mailbox is filled with these rolled up American car magazines, and I am left wondering why I even wasted $20 on them. I didn’t want to criticize the US car magazine industry, but let me just tell you: These magazines are unimaginative, boring, ad-filled, wastes of paper! It’s like Autoblog, but in paper form. I can’t even figure out if any of them are better than the others, because it is impossible to distinguish which one is least crap.
For now, I will have to suffer this silly 12 month subscription; although I am currently debating canceling all of them, even if i don’t get my money back.
