Do you preserve magazines like books, or do you throw them away like newspapers?

Well, I actually threw away all my Sassy magazines and a portion of my Jane magazines. Then in the early 2000's I was feeling nostalgic and bought all of them on ebay so now I have a complete set of each title. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling to read through Sassy again.

That's awesome, what a great thing to have! But I understand how it's not the same as the printed magazine.
I did install the National Geographic on my computer. It is a bit sucky. Rather have the originals.

I do have the first volume and edition. It is a reprint but it s hard to tell.

I have a large pile of vogue magazines, I like them as I think they look nice, I most likely wouldn't read them again, but they have a stylish edge to them and I'm 'in to' that kind of decor (wooden floors, large bookshelves, magazines stacked high used as side tables, large fancy fireplaces....I can't really describe it lol) they are in a cupboard until I move into a house officially instead of renting, but I will still keep them, some I haven't even opened the packaging!

Fashionably me :)
Ever since I got my kindle Fire I've been getting magazines on that. I feel it's a waste of paper to buy a magazine which you look through once then throw out.

I do the same thing. But I have to be more selective with what I rip out because I have a few too many binders. LOL.

I don´t generally, except when Radar was still putting out issues. I´ve kept every single one of them. Stuff like Vogue and Cosmo I very seldom buy and when I do, I don´t keep them after reading.

Magazines are usually around for 6 months, after that I recycle them.

i have all my books from since age 7.

the magazines i kept them for a decade or so but had to throw them out because of mould, moths etc. I still have some Nat Geo mags which are about 30+ years old.
