Glossy Pages of Entertainment and Education

There are various types of magazines sold on magazine stands. The most popular type of magazine is the lifestyle magazine which tackles different aspects of people’s lives. The most common topics covered in these magazines are health and fitness, travel, leisure, fashion, culture, and dating or relationships.

Men’s lifestyle magazines, women’s lifestyle magazines, and general-interest magazines are probably the ones that sell the most because they cater to a broad range of audiences and cover a wide variety of topics. Most of the time, people who appear on the cover of these magazines are famous actors or actresses, celebrities, personalities, singers, or bands. Photos of these people are often accompanied by a printed interview.

Some popular magazines have formats that are patterned to the culture of the country where they are circulated.

Examples of other types of magazine that cover more serious topics are education (like National Geographic), current events (like Time Magazine and The Economist), business (like Forbes and Fortune), fashion (like Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire), and sports (like ESPN The Magazine and Sports Illustrated). However, some magazines like “The Atlantic” have a multi-platform format that includes analysis on politics, business, culture, technology, national, and international life. Many of the abovementioned magazines now have online versions where people can read articles as long as they have Internet access.

Many magazines are good reads especially for people who are very visual. They are popular for quick leisure reading. This is probably the reason why customers who wait at salons are given magazines to read to kill time while they wait.

The texture of most magazine pages is glossy which, in a way, makes them more appealing than the pages of newspapers. People also tend to collect magazines more than newspapers. Magazines allow people to enjoy the benefits of reading while their eyes get stimulated by visuals that accompany articles or interviews being read.

Many magazines are, of course, loaded with advertisements, but the diverse topics they feature not only make them entertaining but also educational. Many readers enjoy seeing photos of celebrities and advertisements, reading interviews, and reading human-interest stories. Some magazines are appealing because of their dedicated advice sections where people can pick up pieces of advice given to readers who write to these magazines to consult about life, relationship, or career issues.
