I like the content of Reader's Digest, how it has articles of a couple pages in length interspersed with jokes, short blurbs about current events and word games. I also like its small size, because I can easily slip it in my bag in order to read it if I'm sitting in the car or waiting at the doctor's office. Two of my favorite issues are the yearly humor issue and the one called the best of everything, which contains blurbs on top ranked things in the U.S., from museum shows to books to quirky roadside attractions.
What I don't like about this magazine is their customer service. When I was a subscriber, I was overcharged a couple times, and once they sent my bill to collections by accident. Also, my rate went up pretty significantly every year once they put me into their "preferred subscriber program" which automatically bills your credit card. My grandmother also had her bill sent to collections when they swore she didn't pay her bill of ten dollars. They decided differently once she found her cancelled check.
In short, this is a good magazine, but don't subscribe, buy it in the store.
