Victoria magazine coverSummer is winding down, but our deals on select magazines are heating up. Select titles are an additional 25 percent off, including these four bestsellers.

Now that the kids are back in school—or at least close to returning—you may have some more time to spruce up your home, try new recipes or take up a new hobby. Whatever the reason, these sale prices are good enough reason to at least try some of these sale titles.

Numbers of dollars speak volumes about magazine quality, so here are four featured titles from our Sizzling Summer Sale that our customers have given their stamp of approval with their business.

Cooking With Paula Deen: If you love Southern comfort foods, decadent desserts and easy edible gift ideas, this magazine’s got it all. Some content has shifted slightly after Paula’s announcement that she suffers from type 2 diabetes. For example, son Bobby of the Cooking Channel’s “Not My Mama’s Meals” gets space devoted to sharing his healthier take on Mom’s richest recipes.

Bloomberg Businessweek: Stay on top of the latest business and financial news in the states and abroad, as well as political and technology developments that impact the business world. Published weekly, this magazine delivers to your home or office address—and your iPad. Your paid subscription includes iPad access at no extra charge.

Taste of the South: Whether you love the South’s regional delicacies or you’re planning to travel there, you’ll experience the best food it has to offer with input from this magazine. Packed with recipes and must-try restaurants in cities below the Mason-Dixon Line, this title is better than ever thanks to a recent redesign.

Victoria: Want inspiration for your home, your garden and your next vacation? This magazine celebrates all things genteel with regular features on inspiring women, lush gardens, menus for entertaining, and off-the-beaten path destinations like B&Bs and museums. Rated 4.8 stars by our customers, some say this is the one title that they can’t live without!

Celebrate National Soup Month With Minimal Work

With winter’s chill sticking around, several January magazines offered their best takes on the healthiest and most satisfying soups–homemade or from the can.

Right about now the weather outside is getting pretty frightful—or at least it’s just downright cold. Good thing, then, that you can warm up and observe National Soup Month in January with one of your go-to favorites or something new. Multiple food and cooking magazines this month are packed with ideas for soups, not to mention stews and chilis if you want something even heartier.

Maybe it’s because we’re in the thick of cold and flu season, but chicken soups got a lot of attention in January issues. Don’t think, however, that  you have to be under the weather to try them. Every Day With Rachael Ray, Cooking Light and Everyday Food each tackled this classic.

Cooking Light and Everyday Food crossed signals somewhat with their coverage on chicken soups enhanced with flavors from around the world, though the closest duplication in both was a recipe for a Mexican chicken soup.

Every Day With Rachael Ray wowed with the most impressive range, including chicken parmigiana, chicken and shrimp paella, Vietnamese chicken pho and andouille gumbo among its 10 variations.

Taste of the South magazine expanded its coverage with the addition of recipes for those all-important sides like parmesan peppercorn flatbread, zucchini-cheddar bread and chive corn sticks.

Making soup for a meal can be relatively quick, but if you just don’t have time for much more than opening a can, Whole Living magazine shares its top five picks for the best—and healthiest—prepackaged soups.

The soups that made the cut include: Pacific Foods organic light sodium creamy tomato; Muir Glen organic reduced sodium chicken noodle; Amy’s Organic lentil; Imagine creamy portobello mushroom and Kettle Cuisine three bean chili.

Before you make a special trip to purchase any one of these, check the manufacturers’ websites to see if a store in your area carries the brands you want to try.
