When you hear the word Beckett you think baseball, football, hockey or collecting, but the company is expanding. With the new venture Beckett Monster Online Games the company who has been covering video games in one form or another in other publications now offers the destination magazine for all lovers of online gaming. Like all other hobbies this one does not come at a cheap price. You'll have to hand over $5.99 for a single issue, but with Beckett quality content and design, the price is well worth it.

Joining the craze of do-it-yourself and moving hand-in-hand with the expanding home improvement chains of Home Depot and Lowe's, the magazine industry is trying to keep pace with all the changes and provide a vehicle for the DIY crowd. After Future US acquired Do! Magazine, they redesigned and renamed the title to better fit their expert form of craft and hobby titles (a category they excel in) and presented the ultimate how-to guide to build a deck, secure your garage or "trick out" your tool bench. So if you shop at Home Depot or Lowe's, House DIY will help you fill up your shopping list.

Success
Cover Price: $4.95

I don't think I've ever been to a country where business and life are as intertwined as in these United States of America. We've reached a stage where the separation between these two worlds is as thin as a dollar bill. Success magazine not only understands this but also covers it in an extremely well done 120-page premier issue that leaves nothing to the imagination when it comes to success in business and in life. This is by far one of the best reincarnations of a magazine that was the bible for success for many, many, many years.
