I've always subscribed to loads of magazines — frankly, many more than I can read. Years ago, I discovered a little secret that slashed my subscription costs dramatically, and allowed me to easily renew all of my subscriptions at once: The "waiting room" subscription. Doctor and professional offices that ordered subscriptions for their waiting rooms got significant discounts. Clever (and slightly disingenuous) guy that I am, I invented a corporate name, and ordered through Ebsco, a magazine supplier to doctors, libraries and corporations. Now, I've cut down on the magazines that I don't really read regularly, and I found a new source that offers similar savings and convenience, without the charade: Magazine subscriptions through Amazon.com. Yes, Amazon offers great prices, convenient renewal, and no pretending that your living room is a waiting room.
