Magazines and such things.

I have learned in my early days of teaching regular English that about all that most of my students will ever read outside of class is a magazine. I would like to collect a big stack of magazines--about cars, trucks, nascar, hunting, sports, cosmetology, photography, basically anything halfway decent and not the economist--to have and use in my classes at times, so they can perhaps learn how to read such things critically and carefully. But alas, I don't know where to begin to amass such a collection without having to buy so many myself. So, I ask you in the Stokes kith and kin community to help me figure out where and how to get such things.

In other sad news, The Atlantic has today restricted access to its website to subscribers only. If anyone would like to donate a subsrictiption to that magazine, that would be most welcome :)
