Besides books, what else do you read?

Blogs, obviously, if you're visiting a page such as this.  Websites in general, I think it would be safe to assume.  But let's take the internet out of the equation.

Do you read magazines?  If so, what titles?
I'm subscribed to many of the fashion rags - Lucky, Glamour, Allure - and get many others, like W and Vogue, from friends and co-workers.  I receive Sierra, the Sierra Club's magazine, and I'm subscribed to National Geographic and a couple of archeaology magazines, too. 

Newspapers are supposed to be dying out.  Do you read them?
Right now I read the San Jose Mercury News daily because it's my regional paper.  I don't have any particular attachment to it, but I know that if I don't have a daily periodical appearing with the news I will probably remain uninformed because I won't seek out a good variety of news.  For a couple of years I also subscribed to Women's Wear Daily, the fashion industry newspaper.  It's expensive, though, even at student rate, so I haven't renewed it recently.

Do audio books count as reading?
I listen to audio books when I'm driving around town, and I probably complete one every two weeks or so.   Obviously I'm not using my eyes to read them, but they were still written and they still impart knowledge.

i read a lot of my friends/net friends unpublished short stories. i think the majority of the people on my f-list are writers in one way or another.

i also have a lot of subscriptions to canadian lit. magazines. mostly poetry because i can't find a good lit. magazine that covers all types of writing. i had a subscription to 'rolling stone' and 'chart' too but they ended and...well, i'm lazy so i never renewed them. :P

newspapers i will only read if i have no access to a computer. i am a bit obsessed with politics and i must know what happens every minute of the day. i admit to checking cnn/msnbc/cbc/whatever multiple times a day.
