The New Yorker offers a smart, lively, and timely mix of politics and world affairs, business and science, and arts and letters. Its writers and artists, the finest working today, fill the magazine with award-winning reporting, criticism, fiction, poetry -- and cartoons.

The Kindle Edition of The New Yorker will usually include all articles, fiction, and poetry found in the print edition and a selection of cartoons, but will not include other images at this time. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand each Monday.

3.0 out of 5 stars I want to love it March 2, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
When the first Kindle came out, I wrote to Amazon that if they got the New Yorker, I'd buy one. They (finally) did, and so now I have a Kindle with a New Yorker subscription. As others have said, the New Yorker is a perfect candidate for Kindle - a ton of content that many of us get behind on but don't want to let go. The idea of carrying around a bunch of issues of the magazine without, well, carrying around a bunch of issues of the magazine - it's perfect! Unfortunately, while I'm glad to have any semblance of this magazine on the Kindle, we're not quite there. The lack of cartoons (and other non-text) content is one factor; another is the lack of a proper table of contents. The "section list" is simply useless. And while you can click one of the little numbers next to the sections and then page through the "articles list," there is no way that I can find to simply jump to the articles list the way you can use the menu button to reach the table of contents on a Kindle book. When my print New Yorker arrives each week, the first thing I do is scan the table of contents: I want to see if my favorite writers have pieces in the new issue, I want to know the titles of the articles so I can flag which ones sound interesting. And when I get behind by a few issues, I use the tables of contents to find the content I absolutely must read. While search can help when I'm hunting for, say, "the one with the excerpt from DFW's unfinished novel," I'm not always possessed of terms to type into the little box. The Kindle edition's buried-in-the-interface "articles list" simply doesn't allow the kind of efficient triage that the print edition's table of contents makes effortless. There are just too many clicks. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars back to drawing board? February 16, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
others have noted the incompleteness of the Kindle 'New Yorker' where cartoons are concerned; today I received the Kindle 'New Yorker' for 23 February 2009 and it lacks the Italo Calvino story that appears in the print edition--what gives? I'd love to read the *complete* editorial content of the magazine each week on my Kindle--but there are obviously still some kinks to be ironed out

1.0 out of 5 stars Only Seven Most Recent Issues Saved March 6, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I love The New Yorker. But I'm usually many months behind in reading it. Consequently, when I go on a trip, I take a tall stack of New Yorkers with me. This weighs down my luggage

I initially thought that having a Kindle would enable me to substantially lighten my luggage by allowing me to dispense with all the heavy paper copies of The New Yorker that I usually carry with me. But there is a problem with keeping numerous back issues of The New Yorker on the Kindle.

Amazon will reload to your Kindle only the 7 most recent issues. For example, if you are 25 weeks behind in reading The New Yorker (as I now am), and your Kindle breaks or is lost, Amazon will reload your Kindle with only the last 7 issues. The other 18 issues would be lost.

Backing up the issues is not an option. Each issue is keyed only to a particular Kindle. Consequently, if your Kindle breaks or is lost, the backup copies CANNOT be used on your new Kindle. Your only option is to have Amazon send you reissues, which they will do only for the 7 most recent issues.

This policy with respect to periodicals is in sharp contrast to the policy with respect to books. Once you buy a Kindle book, you can always retrieve that book from Amazon. I don't understand why Amazon doesn't allow us to retrieve all the periodicals we have purchased (in the same manner it allows us to retrieve all the books we have purchased).

UPDATE (January 21, 2013): All back issues of the iPad edition of The New Yorker (dating back to October 4, 2010) are available for download from Apple's App Store, not just the last seven issues. Even better, the iPad edition of The New Yorker is currently free to print subscribers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Yorker and Kindle -- perfect together February 15, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I'd been waiting months, hoping The New Yorker would join the Kindle's magazine lineup, and as I expected, this has been the most satisfying Kindle magazine experience yet.

It's nicely formatted and easily navigated. (Though if I hadn't read another review here, I wouldn't have known how to access the cover by going to the top of the articles list and hitting previous page. Or that I wasn't getting ALL the cartoons.)

Graphic-heavy magazines like Time and Newsweek so far haven't proved worth it on the Kindle, since the stories often refer to pictures or graphs we're not seeing. But though it's become a little more graphic-friendly in recent years, The New Yorker still puts words first, and words are the Kindle's strong point. (That and not ending up with a pile of magazines you don't want to recycle because you think you might want to reread something in the future. A paper subscription to this magazine presents Sorcerer's Apprentice-like problems, given the frequency of publication.)

Price for all this seems more than reasonable, especially given that keeping back issues on my SD card will make my stash more easily searchable than those piles would be, while not creating a fire hazard.

I live in Germany and subscribe to the print edition. I just got a Kindle and today sent a mail to the New Yorker customer service asking them why I can't change my subscription to my Kindle. Will let you know once they reply.

Can I gift a Kindle New Yorker subscription?
I guess the answer is no since it is not an option, but why don't they just answer the darn question? And more importantly, why not make that an option? It would be a great X-Mas gift.

Kindle New Yorker is DOUBLING in price
This is a money grab, plain and simple. There's no reason an electronic subscription should be more expensive than the print one, and to double the price is just crazy. Netflix was the first thing I thought of as well.
