It was a pleasant surprise to find the Columbia Journalism Review available here in the Kindle format, but also a disappointment. The surprise came from the fact that this reader has always enjoyed the excellence in journalism found in CJR's Website and in their printed material; the disappointment is that it will only be issued every two months.

CJR was founded in the early 1960s under the auspices of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, and for this reader, they represent the high high journalistic standards that we should expect in the world today. They have been a "watchdog and a friend of the press in all its forms, from newspapers to magazines to radio, television, and the Web," and it's this form of balance that has made them so good since just before the Vietnam Era.

The content is excellent. Looking through the current issue, we find the Language Corner column, where Merrill Perlman takes a look at the word "Grudge," and observes that the word has its roots in an old German word meaning "lament," that it's a lot of fun to say. Among other things he states:

"The noun 'grudge' means 'hostility or ill will against someone over a real or fancied grievance,' or the cause of that resentment, says Webster's New World College Dictionary (Fourth Edition). 'He bears a grudge because a woman was promoted instead of him' is one example.

There is a section by Marla Jo Fisher entitled Beyond 'Deep Throat,' where reporters find themselves in odd situations, offering anecdotes from various journalists. Elysse James, a reporter for the Orange County Register offered this:

"I covered a police-dog funeral for the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

This is an EXCELENT MAGAZINE and I've subscribed to it for some years -- in print form, then print/online and now in emagazine form on my iPad. I just realized, however, that while this magazine publishes every two months (6 issues per year), Amazon Kindle is charging me a monthly subscription rate of $1.99. This means I'm paying $23.88 instead of the ordinary rate of $19.99 charged by Columbia Journalism Review, Zinio and other emagazine services. Am cancelling this subscription "plan" immediately for obvious reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for iPhone, like a portable CJR library July 3, 2013
This edition is clean and easy to read. I really like that I can read it on my iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and my Google Nexus 7 tablet. Because I can get it on all my devices and I can store all my old issues, I feel like it is a good equivalent to the print version.
