Mag ABCs: Full circulation round-up for the first half of 2013

Here is a full breakdown for UK magazine sales in the first half of 2013 as measured by ABC.

Around 240 titles were audited this time, far fewer than the 516 titles who posted figures six months ago in the last set of magazine industry ABCs. This is because most titles opt to be audited just once a year.

Free supermarket monthly Tesco Magazine has just snuck past free rival Asda Magazine to become the biggest circulation magazine in the UK.
