Low chance of winning-but i'll still dream

My mum was hooked on Take A Break magazines even when she was younger, so it was inevitable I would follow in her footsteps. I remember her introducing me to it when we were chatting about magazines in the kitchen one day. I had never read one or cared to read one in fact. She said I was missing...

Really good real life stories & some fab recipes

The chance of winning a competition is very low

I work on average 6 days out of 7 and work some really strange shifts so when it comes down to my hour long break a day I really don't know what to do with myself. As a child I used to always get a copy of Shout magazine from my gran she used to buy me one from the local paper shop and give it to...

“A good weekly magazine”

published 22/10/2012

Good price, appeals to a variety of readers

Some stories are similar each week

I first came across a copy of this magazine a few years ago in a doctors waiting room. It was an old copy and when I left I decided to pick one up. The magazine costs a bit more than it did back then, retailing at 84p these days, which is still good for what you get. The magazine is weekly, in...

Cheap, easy reading and easy to enter competitions

Some stories can be difficult and sad to read

I buy Take a Break on a weekly basis. This is mostly bought in my lunch break and left in my drawer to read when I am on lunch and the weather is too rubbish to take a walk outside (which is most of the time at the moment!) I have decided to do a review on this magazine as there are quite a few...

I am a huge celebrity fan and am always stocking up on the latest magazines to keep me entertain. I tend to stick to my usuals; Cosmopolitan, Glamour, More, New and Star. Although occasionally I do tend to go in a different direction and buy ‘real life’ ones. I recently bought Take A Break...

cheap. Lots for your money

depressing stories

I first started buying Take a Break last year as a way of passing the time during my sometimes long and boring night shifts. At first glance the front cover showed lots of amazing prizes that were on offer as a result of successfully completing their puzzles. I bought Take a Break from Tesco's...
