5.0 out of 5 stars Great news & comment resource - perfect for Kindle! August 3, 2010
I have been searching for an unbiased, well-written news source for my Kindle since purchasing the device in December. I tried the New York Times (nice, but enormously overpriced!), WJS, Boston Globe, Financial Times, Economist, USA Today, etc. but the combination of worthwhile information and monthly cost just didn't work for me. Then came the Christian Science Monitor. Intelligent, diverse, in-depth articles and columns covering world and US news along with a nice commentary section each day. No fluff/tabloid nonsense - I can get People Magazine type articles, travel columns, and sports scores elsewhere if needed. The CSM on the Kindle covers the relevant news of the day, business & money, culture issues, art, environment, books, and more in a concise easy to read a fair price point. Thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars An always-excellent newspaper at a reasonable price November 24, 2010
I subscribed to the daily print edition of the Christian Science Monitor for several years, until they stopped printing it on 3/30/09. Over its 100-year history, the CSM has been widely regarded as one of the most objective newspapers in English. I don't need a newspaper to tell me what to think, I just want to know what happened, and why. The CSM has their own journalists writing their own stories, without simply reprinting wire service feeds. And the paper often gives backgrounders to major stories, so you can understand why events are unfolding as they are. Because it has a relatively small staff, some stories just don't get covered, so you have to rely on other sources such as radio or your local paper or, failing that, TV.

The print edition took at least a week to get to me (in Canada), and cost $300 a year for five issues a week. The Kindle edition is seven days a week, delivered to me first thing in the morning, every morning, for $10 a month. My Kindle pays for itself in a year. How can you beat that?

I'd say the Tuesday through Saturday editions have at least a third more content than the print edition did, although the Sunday and Monday editions are very slim, with less than a half-dozen stories.

On the Kindle, it's easy to navigate through the paper, or any newspaper for that matter, so you can easily find stories of interest, keep back issues, and even clip articles you want to save. I still buy single copies of the New York Times, the Globe & Mail, and some other papers, to get more news whenever I have more time to read, but the CSM and my other reading generally keeps me busy.

But it is disturbing to see many stories on the CSM website that didn't make it into the Kindle edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well-Balanced News Analysis If One Receives It! March 25, 2011
Edited: Aug. 20, 2011. I have been enjoying the CSM on my Kindle for some time but have lately found it very disappointing. For the past several days, I received only two or three articles each day, and these were weekdays not the weekend. Those articles were interesting, but I canceled my subscription. Why pay for news I am not receiving?! My below review pertains to my past experience with the paper, not to my current experience. I have changed the title of my review to reflect my present feelings and changed my rating from the four stars I originally gave it to the two stars (really one-and-a-half stars!) I would give it today because of its failure to send enough articles to justify the price. Here is my original review:

For those wanting to read The Christian Science Monitor on their easy-on-the-eyes Kindle, this subscription has its pros and cons, but the pros outweigh the cons for me.

It is true that the Monitor's own website, which I frequently scan, has a lot of content which does not download as part of the subscription and that the number of articles which does download varies. Because the CSM does not publish much on the weekend, few articles download on Sunday and Monday. On the other hand, about 30 articles download Tuesday through Saturday.

The daily World and USA sections form the heart of the subscription. The numerous articles in each, some of which display a photo, provide excellent news analysis because they present more than one point of view about the situation being discussed, a great strength of the CSM, which is known for its balanced reporting. The Monitor saves its own viewpoints for the weekday Commentary section, which also presents those of contributors representing different areas of expertise.

2013 update: I have found some very disappointing editorials and reporting in this newspaper and have cancelled my subscription. I sincerely hope they return to the way they were before this change. Original review:I am very happy with my Kindle edition of the CSM. I have not read news coverage with less bias than this newspaper. I am not politically in the middle but the exaggerations and half truths from both sides that is reported by other newspapers drives me crazy. This one point makes this newspaper worth it for me.

The Kindle Edition is basically paying for the convenience of having a few of the articles from the main page ( This convenience is something I would pay for, but it is inexcusable that the content of the payed kindle edition would actually be less than the free online edition. If the price were lowered a little bit and the amount of content were expanded to reflect the main page, than I will continue to subscribe to this.

It is the best daily in-depth news analysis available. It is non-political news analysis which is almost impossible to find today.
