City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Mags... papers...

If you’re interested in politics you’ll go for Sobodna Bosna - Free Bosnia or Dani - Days, if you want to put your feet up and relax you’ll go for Azra, Gloria… Cosmopolitan.
Djerdan or Skandi if you’re enjoying crosswords.
Oslobodjenje - Freedom is the daily newspaper with the highest circulation. They were awarded the newspaper of the World in 1992.
There are many more, these are just a few.

What do you usually read?
How often do you buy magazines or paper?

Newspaper stands are great fun to browse. I subscribe to lots of different magazine but don't buy them in stores: The New Yorker, Nat'l Geographic, Gourmet, and others, and I still have newspapers delivered. Can't get out of the habit of reading the paper---not the internet---a newspaper. Sunday mornings are still spent reading the newspaper.

I never read or buy a newspaper, I spend all my time DP blogging! No, just joking. I love my Saturday copy of the Sydney Morning Herald. The rest (such as french newspapers) I read online.

merci pour cette revue de presse. J'adore les kiosques à journaux, malheureusement en France ils ont du mal à vivre et beaucoup vont fermes.

thank you for this press review. I adore the newspaper kiosks, unfortunately in France they have evil to live and much go firm.

I'm a magazine junkie. I subscribe to them as well as the daily newspaper. I enjoy holding the paper and taking my time rather reading on the the internet.
I like the colorful assortment in this shot.

I don't have any subscriptions to any newspapers/magazines. For magazines, I generally check out my local Barnes & Nobles bookstore.
I used to read the New York Times in college; but I no longer have a subscription, so I usually read the copies in bookstores; as well as read online editions.
When I was younger I used to have a lot of magazine subscriptions: Newsweek, New Moon (a literary journal for teen girls) Seventeen, Entertainment Weekly, The Economist, through school. It was quite an eclectic set!

I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the media in the balkans. I've been doing some online searches, and have been reading articles from Mediaonline.ba for research.

What is your opinion of the following papers with regard to reporting, journalist objectivity, accuracy of the articles, political view point?

Slobodna Bosna

SB and Dani seem to be more independent, and both papers, but especially SB looks at political corruption issues. SB seems to be a bit more "in your face" than DANI does; at least that is my impression.

thanks for any insights you can give.

Mostly I enjoy the color photos since I do not understand most of it :D Newsweek is my preferred political digest, where as for leisure these days I go for DIY/Interior magazines. Hey you didnt tell us about your preference?

thank you all for you great comments.

Kris – you’re right it’s only fair to say now what i read, well i do have a subscription for National Geographic, from time to time i read New Scientist, when i travel i always buy Glamour magazine (not that there’s much to read) because it's small and handy to carry and regularly check news on internet. i try not to be ignorant but politics make me sick so i just stay informed reading ‘headlines’ =) and i should add at the end i read loooots of books.

Since I started blogging, I haven't had too much time for reading - or TV... Though I still buy a lot of magazines.
