    It’s written available about discovery magazines. It seems to be a joke. I subscribed it but I never received one. Yeah, I have received reader’s digest instead. Now a good joke from India today group, you subscribe for discovery and get readers digest at your door. And the best thing about them is even after complaints you will receive the same reader’s digest of six months in a single courier.
    Is that a joke.
