Snow day!

New England is getting hammered with snow and we have no school today, so I've been relaxing fireside. BBC America is on in the background and I've just finished a lovely cup of English Breakfast tea (my personal favorite).

Today's post is dedicated to my favorite thing to do on days like this: reading!

As I said yesterday, I'm currently reading "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin. Fabulous chick lit book and I'm eager for the movie, which is coming out this spring.

I also have an obsession with magazine subscriptions. I currently receive Fitness magazine and Better Homes and Gardens. When I'm at the local bookstore, I usually pick up Martha Stewart magazine and Yankee Magazine. This week I picked up another magazine, but with a twist. It was the newest issue of Country Living, British edition.

No, I don't live in England (I wish!!!) but I was so taken by the cover and the first few articles that I had to have it. So far my favorite article is the Country Diary, which describes life in a typical English village. Another wonderful section is "Discovering Life's Simple Pleasures", which are smaller blurbs about books, nature, baking, places to go, things to make, etc. This month also included a half page section of The Art of Letter Writing!

What magazines do you love? Which ones do you literally run to the mailbox or bookstore for?
