    Whats good to read these days?
    Not the papers obviously, if or when they go under it will be their own fault not the internet.
    But anyway what other publications do you pick up ?

    Irish newsagents have a great habit of sticking an extra €4 on things but I still grab
    Phoenix, Private Eye, Nat Geo, History Ireland and other random History bits, New statesman and Prospect when I can.

    What about yourselves, anything I'm missing?

    London Review of Books is a must for me. Apart from everything else it contains a surprising amount of political stuff.

    New Scientist, Economist, given up on broadsheet papers although occasionally buy the Sunday Times for the Culture and Arts review section just to keep up with whats happening otherwise I'm almost switched over to e-media.

    Can't give up books though as nothing beats the aroma of a new book opened to page 1...

    Veering off topic but I'd a theory when I read a lot of papers that news goes through a washcycle ... front page for perceptions of what has happened then that news gets washed through the opinion pages and eventually ends up in the book review pages. Last stop would be critical appraisal of the books. Maybe another thread some rainy day on that...

    And then there's the storage issue, the glossy magazines use up quite a lot of space compared to the little space the electronic editions require with all them massive 2 or 3 TB monster hard drives around today.

    Never mind searching a specific article later, thanks to intelligent desktop search solutions you'll find what you're looking for in no time.

    Storage: NatGeo is tiny and I usually pass them on to the mother after.
    Phoenix is slim and well worth hanging on to imo. Still can't understand how the circulation is only around 16,000.

    I was lead to believe, drinking isn't as common as it once was in newsrooms but you have to wonder.
    I gave up the papers for new years and have no chance of failing off the wagon. Drivel

    Phoenix is definitely worth supporting. One of the very few honourable attempts made by the fourth estate in Ireland to hold the executive, administrative and judicial arms of the state to account. Not to mention tracking many an iffy business deal. Hat-tip ...

    Fine satirical magazine indeed, they should publish online, certainly would boost their sales.

    Yes- I'd give a hat tip to Village as well and they've been doing some great work lately in particular around the Whistleblower thread on Unicredito and the capital ratio surfing in the IFSC.

    That was an outstanding piece of work I thought.

    Confirmed by RTE - The Independent Group which owns more than 20% will not support losses any longer.

    When in Ireland, I tend to spend sunday mornings drinking an over-priced coffee in a paper cup in my local cafe. I compensate this by the reading the coffee shops Sunday papers.
    Works out I pay 3 euros for a coffee, and also get to read at least two newspapers free. In fact if I time it well, and when the staff are leaving, they implore me to take the papers home....just to get me out.
    Yes, my life really is that exciting.

    Quite enjoy the Tribune. Hope Suzanne Breen finds a good employer. She's Ireland's best investigative journalist. (not a hard task, but she is anyway)
