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 format....at a fair price point. Thumbs up!

This is one stop shopping for world news! In depth reporting with clear and concise editorials. On occasion some just plain fun stuff to read too.

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.

Everyday expect at least one thought provoking article that you will want to share with a friend or colleague. One reason I like the Monitor is that the articles are not just focused on the "bad" part of events creating a very simplified black and white world. The articles discuss events in a way that show the many facets of an event and make you think. It is really refreshing to read such well written and thought out articles on pertinent issues. I have been reading the Monitor for years and subscribe to the weekly paper edition. Very happy to get a daily version on my Kindle. Some days there are more articles than others but that is fine since I am always behind. The Table of Contents and formating are excellent for the Kindle. Definitely worth every penny.

I knew about the Monitor for years and since I just bought a Kindle I decided to try the fourteen day free trial. I wanted the news balanced between left and right and maybe leaning to the right just a little. The Monitor is just what I was looking for. Every morning between four and five it shows up on my Kindle. There are plenty of articles all week long and then just a few over the weekend. Perfect. There is a reason the ratings for this newspaper are better then most. It's good news, affordable, and dependable.

When you rate the Monitor in any capacity, you pretty much have to give them the full 5 Star rating, just based on their heritage, who they are, and what they stand for - "To injure no man but to bless all mankind." Whether it is in print, online, on a Kindle, or now on the Kindle Fire, you can always rely on their consistent, reliable, U.S. and Worldwide reporting to give you a straight and accurate shot, right down the middle. The Monitor is, without question, singularly the news organization that strives the hardest, and then delivers in providing what is truly unbiased reporting.

In my own My.Yahoo page, my three columns are headed by news modules from The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and in the top right lead position, The Christian Science Monitor, with this module opened to get their full list of their top ten headlines - in other words, left, right, and then where the rubber hits the road.

In the Kindle Fire presentation, you can see the Monitor, like every other news organization, is working on how best to present their product in the digital environment. As expected the CSM's Kindle Fire presentation is a big and refreshing jump from the former black and white Kindle presentation. Currently not as flashy and slick as the WSJ and the NYT, but they will get there eventually. And from this reviewer's perspective, it is a news source that one can simply not be without. Superb news organization.

The Monitor delivers pertinent news for the world as well as the U.S. It is objective and their articles are nice and concise. I can read all of the news pertinent to me in about an hour.

It was so easy to use and navigate around this "newspaper." And ease of coming back to where I left off.

The Christian Science Monitor brings me world news with detail and balance. It does not cover everything, which it shouldn't, but it covers all of the important news in depth. Each edition limits itself to the important news, so the coverage is in depth without sprawling over thousands of articles. Very good and satisfying to someone who wants to know more than one view, but doesn't have time to read everything in the news.

This is a very good newspaper. The news is written objectively with no nonsense. That is the reason that I like the Christian Science Monitor for daily news. I have it on my tablet and read it every day. The news on the Monitor is better that television news. Highly recommended.
