I like Birds&Blooms, its good reading and pictures. It gives me ideas on how to make a sustainable garden. Also, help the humming birds get a move on. I always tend to plant and leave it, it has to fend for itself other than simple weeding. I had the great hens&chickens garden for awhile, but moved it in order to make a raised flower bed box. the oldies transplants didn't seem to take. of course, I like the letters or comments and it seems to be a magazine that caters well to its readers, no super ads, etc..
I read Time and Newsweek only because the events that past in an issue or so over-glossed when it comes to WWW news feeds. It rarely seems to be taken to task, just dumped on the screen. rare follow-ups or more sizzle in something else. its always the hot-hot-hot topic of the day, like the Te'O imaginary affair. That gets so dragged out it really not news worthy, IMO.
As for magazines in general especially women based they seem to stay similar and come and go and return better or worse. They stick to the tried true formulas and apparently that works. I love my old "Hot Hod" magazines but these have changed so much, its more about installing purely out of the box improvements, rather yard tree hints or tips on a regular basis. -----Willy
