The only magazine I still subscribe to in connection with woodworking, is WoodenBoat.
Check out your local library, they have all sorts of books to lend, for free - often you can find a book you think you really want, then when you actually look it it find out no, and at times you will find one you really want to own, so then you go and buy one. And check out used bookstores, you can often get a great value there. Altho I have found that all too often anymore I can get a used book on-line, including shipping, from one of the on-line booksellers, for less than the cost of the same book in a used bookstore. Go figure. I much prefer the printed word over a screen.
Oh yes, the only time I hit new bookstores is to look thru what they have, and if I find a book I would like to own, then I either try buying on-line, or in a used bookstore. I seldom buy new books, except special interest, cost is too much for me.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
