I don't subscribe to GW I must admit - I seem to buy it quite randomly (lots of train travel) and looking back over the last issues purchased its dawned on me it would have actually been cheaper to subscribe,
Books are a different matter though; I cant think there's been a presenter or contributer of GW whose books I haven't bought.. Sadly most seem to end up as door stops. I seem to hate technical books and enjoy those which have a story or personal touch.. Monty Don and C Kleins diary types being the most recent (I have enjoyed) though I still think Montys old DK book was the best... Hell I even enjoyed a couple of Alan Ts books until I realised I was reading in his voice and threw it at the cat in horror.
I'm a sucker for "gardens Illustrated" for the same reasons - Its un technical but seems to have more ideas and inspiration in two photos than GW ever offers, but then again it didn't give me half price entry to some of the best gardens in the country and more inspiration than could ever be captured in pics..
Just wondering then ..
