Back in high school one of the "Phonetics" teachers (Peace Corps volunteers that were teaching English) used to come to class with old copies of New Yorker - and assigning articles from them for different tasks. And I hated to get a book/magazine home and not read the whole of it.
Later, when I started traveling, I was in the States for a 3rd or a 4th time and I was stuck on an airport with a delayed flight. Had my book with me as always but after a few hours, started to wander. Ended up picking up a few magazines (New Yorker, NG, Economist, Newsweek - the last 3 were my usual reading in English; the New Yorker was.. an experiment). When I went back home, NY got into my semi-regular list. When I moved to the States and got a Kindle, the subscription was a no-brainer.
So... back to the question. Regularly? Less than a year. Occasionally - 4-5 years. Reading it for the first time - somewhere in the late 90s :)
If that helps (I know it does not...) Borders closed everywhere...
I was the first subscriber in Bulgaria for a very long list of literary journals and magazines - for most of them, it was not even an option on the payment page :) So... check what they would offer anyway -- I doubt that it will end up a lot more expensive than the Economist...
I used to catch up when I went to the beach on weekends in the summers. I'd bring out a handful and knock them off on the train or during the day. Haven't done that for a while, and I've allowed real life to get in the way these past few years much too much, so they've piled up. I figure that a year after I retire I might be current!
fallen behind by months again..I find it very difficult to keep up if I'm reading a book at the same time..have to choose which to read first and since the book is often out of the library that becomes the priority.
Recently, a friend told me that she knew her husband was "the one" because he read the New Yorker.
