I'll pick up a copy of CQ every once in a while when there's an article of interest, but find it generally too limited. QST is a better general coverage amateur radio magazine - the problem being that unless you belong to the ARRL (and get it with your membership), it can be hard to find. On the other hand, you can JOIN the ARRL for about the same cost as subscribing to CQ anyway ... and get a better magazine. My advice is to pass CQ by and pick up the ARRL membership with QST magazine (www.arrl.org) instead. CQ will be available on the supermarket or bookstore rack if there's a current issue you want.
