20 Best Flipboard Magazines to Follow

I’ve been talking and writing a lot about Flipboard recently, both online and in my workplace to anyone who’ll listen. It’s really a simple app for consuming a news stream that’s been personalized to your tastes.

But apart from searching for your favorite topics and people, what else is out there in Flipboard land that is worth following? Allow me to recommend my favorites.
