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 started listing comic book titles, and realized it'd be easier to list the authors: Bill Willingham, Brian Lee O'Malley, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Brian K. Vaughan, and Joss Whedon.

Favourite webcomics include those listed above, as well as Three Panel Soul and Penny Arcade.

When I'm stuck in an airport, or something, with a little time to kill, I usually pick up Wired or Bust. If I'm stuck on campus (Waterloo now, but it used to be Carleton), I might pick up the university newspaper.

Nowadays, I can also re-visit some video games like a good book, and my prime example is Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube. The Final Fantasy series isn't bad either, but can be a bit lengthy for revisiting. And finally, of course, Portal.
