    I think I am gonna subscribe to Bee Culture and give it a try. I picked up some old copies of BC and American Bee Journal, and I think I like BC a little better than ABJ. ABJ is more like a periodical than a magazine to me. BC is a little more basic and less scientific. If BC is as erratic in delivery as everyone says, then I will change to ABJ after my $25 yr subsrciption expires.
    My 2 cents...

    I subscribed to Bee Culture for a while and enjoyed it. Last year was so busy, however, that I have a stack of unread magazines, so I did not renew.

    I will usually save the few articles I think are "keepers," and drop the rest of the stack off at the annual New Beekeeper's class for the students to take home.

    I started out with both BC and ABJ. I found information in both that interested me. And then I let my subscriptions lapse. Later I resubscribed to BC in digital format. I've found that I don't like reading a magazine on my computer. Sometimes I like to take an interesting article out side on a warm day. I have resubscribed to ABJ. When my digital version to BC stops I will resubscribe to a paper version - loggers need jobs too.

    ABJ may be for a larger operation (than I have), and BC may be more for the hobbyist (which I am), but both contain important information.

    As was stated before, this forum is probably the best source of information as it combines real time experience with the knowledge of a most helpful community.

    That would be my choice. We had another similar thread on this same subject a couple weeks ago. I think BC is geared a little more towards the hobbist keep.
