It's "under consideration" for me, as well, Skye.
I'm not quite sure HOW, but somehow they got me on some sort of "autorenew-via-credit-card" deal, and every August for the past few years I just automatically see a charge on my Discover card for a renewal to Entertainment Weekly. Since the renewal rate hasn't been TOO high (and since I enjoy "enough" of the articles, and like keeping up on the new movies, and such, and reading the movie reviews), I've been letting it slide... But IF the magazine continues to "slide," as well, I may notify my Discover card before August NOT to accept any more auto-renews from them.
Besides, I have "this thing" about not wanting to throw away old magazines... Currently, I have five or six YEARS worth of Entertainment Weeklies scattered here and there around the house... in this room, piled up near the toilet, in my bedroom, den, living room... That doesn't include all the monthly issues of Discover Magazine (WON'T cancel that one), Audubon, Defenders of Wildlife, National Geographics I never got out of the cover (finally stopped that subscription), PC Worlds (several years of THAT, as well, but I finally got fed up with ITS diminishing quality, as well, and JUST let it go)... Just joined the Sierra Club and the WWF, though, and also a member of the National Wildlife Federation, so I get all their stuff... Lifetime member of the National Home Gardening Club, so I get their magazine...
At ONE TIME, I was a collector of "men's magazines." I finally took almost ALL of those (enough to make several stacks to the ceiling) to the paper recycler, lol. Guess I'll have to buckle down and do likewise with most of this other stuff some day.
Doyathink I might be just a TAD OCD??? "So Ya Think You Can Hoard, Hoard, Hoard!" (Trust me, I'm nowhere NEAR the league of the folks you see on those "Hoarder" shows on A&E -- If they're a 10, I MIGHT be a 2 I just don't like throwing out stuff I can READ again -- oh, and boxes that aren't crushed -- can use them again -- to store "stuff" in -- If I ever get it organized!)
I think It's time I go to BED!
