English Magazines

Hi, I am very fond of reading magazines. Nothing in particular. I read everything from gossip magazines to news magazines. I love readers digest and national geographic but unfortunately till now I haven't found any in English. Does anyone know where I can buy/ rent English magazines on a regular basis 😊

Subscription is the easiest way. Delivered directly to your door and you don't have to pay the extortionate price you would in a Kiosk.

Re: English Magazines

National Geographic can be found in almost any dentist's waiting room in Switzerland.

Seriously, most magazines do international delivery these days. But be prepared for the sticker shock - you'll pay a premium for delivery to Switzelrand.

Even, in some cases, for the online version. Go figure.

Since you haven't listed your location I can't help you with where you can 'rent' magazines... but many libraries in larger towns/cities will have English language magazines available.

Re: English Magazines

If you don't mind the online versions then take a look at Readly.com.
You pay a monthly subscription which gives you access to hundreds of magazines of all different genres.

Re: English Magazines

National Geographic is available on subscription and in English, we had it when we lived there.
