Take A Break
Advantages: A lot in one magazine!
I first read Take a Break as a teenager my nan used to buy it. When I grew up and left home I started to buy it myself. I have to admit I love magazines I buy about 6 a week. Take a Break currently costs 82p and is widely available in supermarkets and newsagents.
It is marketed as Britains bestselling weekly. You can also get special editions that cost a little more with dedicated stories focused on a certain area such a 'Puzzle Magazine' containing only puzzles and 'Spirit and Destiny' which contains stories relating to supernatural and spiritual occurances.
Take a Break is a nicely balanced magazine in my opinion. It contains true life stories these can be stories of affairs, love, murder but there are also uplifting stories on more positive things too. Take a Break also campaign for women's issues, some of which have been taken straight to Downing Street. The campaign for the right to breast reductions and jobs for mums as well as regularly featuring women who have survived breast cancer. There are also features on health, recepies, problem pages, readers letter and photos as well as several puzzles throughout and competitions.
I buy Take a Break mainly for the true life stories. I like to take a magazine into the bath with me while I am relaxing, as a new mum this is probably the only time I get to read magazines now. I never do the puzzles, however once I have read the magazine I take it to my nan's and she will just do the puzzles only and enter the competitions. We haven't won anything yet!
Compared to other magazines in the same category I buy Take a Break is the best quality, it costs a little more than others but it is definately worth it for the variety of the content.
I would give this 5 out of 5 as it is by far my favourite women's weekly (men can read it too though!!)
Summary: A good all round magazine
