Great question as im at the airport and was thinking of this. id get the atlantic or new yorker, the mens health or fitness, which one has the most sex or fitness tips ill never use.

Beth said...

My answer is just the woman's version of John, I'll pick up atlantic and/or new yorker, and then usually something fluffy, like glamor or something.

USWeekly or People, Rolling Stone, and Glamour/Cosmo/Marie Claire

People. Then spend the rest of the money at the airport bar....

Bon Appetit, dwell, Vogue (or Elle). If there was any money left, I'd get a NY Post.

Vanity Fair, Dwell, & Wired. I'm such a dork. :)

Karen said...

my philosophy is that while i'm mid air, i can engage in frivolous pursuits and read total trash, so definitely people, us weekly, glamour, and this month the time magazine with hillary on the cover, not because she's frivolous but because she's awesome.

Fiction Novel (Bonus if set in DC)
USA Today
Bottled Water

Cate said...

Real Simple. New York Magazine. The Economist.

Scottie said...

Probably Food & Wine or some other food mag, then probably either Details or Esquire so I can look at suits I'll never be able to afford.

Mike said...

Thats tough because the only magazines I read I have a suscription to (SI, Time). Maybe ESPN or some other news magainze.

i would choose magazines: 1) with the most compelling covers; 2) that i don't subscribe to; 3) don't have people i can't stand on the cover.

I'm thinking Wired, something for an Apple elitist (I can't help myself) , and Men's Health.

Dan said...

I usually read Harper's on the plane, and the Atlantic if the cover story's good. Sports Illustrated is sometimes in the mix too. I really like all three, but for some reason I read them ONLY when I'm flying.
