Someone I know took to sneaking Us Weekly magazine home to read, tired of taunts and jeers from her co-workers when she openly perused its pages for juicy gossip at work on breaks. Another friend just loves Reader’s Digest, but doesn’t want to be seen reading it among her highly educated co-workers who can be snobs at times about reading. Are you a closet lover of popular magazines?
