5.0 out of 5 stars The Post is very nice on the Kindle February 27, 2008
After purchasing two single issues (just to get used to the layout of the newspaper and how to navigate the sections and articles), I ended up subscribing. I haven't subscribed to a newspaper in many years, so I wasn't sure how much I would read it, but the Post now seems to be my primary reason for even having a Kindle. I read it every chance I get throughout the day, and I love the clean organization of the sections and articles. It's very easy to glance at the beginning of each article and skip the ones that don't interest me. I don't live in DC, so I rarely look at the "Metro" or "Obituaries" sections. I mainly focus on the "A Section" and "Editorial" articles (plus maybe a few articles from "Business", "Sports", "Style", and "Food"), and so far, I haven't missed having pictures, and I certainly don't miss the ads and other junk that typically clutters up "real" newspapers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Washington Post on my Kindle...Brilliant November 23, 2007
By iJeffry
I like the Post but was uncertain wha it'd be like on my Kindle. It's a dream. as it turns out, I may enjoy my Kindle as a newspaper/newsdelivery device/service as much or more than I do for reading books. I don't live in DC and I don't particularly like getting covered in newsprint. The Post is easy to scan, skim and navigate on the Kindle and icludes none of the mess or fuss of the local paper...and is cheaper!

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing what makes the paper a paper July 15, 2008
I just got my Kindle over the weekend as a gift and was delighted that I could read the local paper -- the Washington Post-- on it. However, after a few days of trying, I'm pretty confident that I will not be subscribing to the Kindle version of the Post. Why?

1) It's not a real replacement for the paper. I miss the letters to the editor, the editorial cartoons, the comics pages, the crossword puzzle et al, and even the box scores so I can check on the hapless Cincinnati Reds.

2) While I'm generally delighted not to have any advertising, I do miss the classified ads. Also, sometimes, I do look at the ads if a sale is on.

3) No Sunday inserts, including coupons!

4) No pictures whatsoever. Sure, pictures are high-bandwidth, but they are an important part of how we communicate information.

5) Price. The paper is more expensive than a home delivery but is missing all the features I list above....

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Ex-Washingtonians January 24, 2008

I subscribe, in print, to the Wall Street Journal and NY Times, at a combined $61ish per month (the lion's share of that being the Times), and on Kindle I can get the Journal, NY Times AND The Washington Post (yes, I love newspapers...)for a combined $34ish. Thats just over half the cost, with the BONUS of getting the Post.

I was afraid that the Post content would be limited, highlights only, or non full-text, but I have compared the Kindle editions to the full graphic display at and you are getting basically 100% of the printed content. Yes, no ads (Washingtonians miss their local ads), no or few photos, no classifieds (I do like to follow DC real estate prices) and no comics, but all the text is there. Monday mornings, I want to read about the Redskins anyway, not read the Comics.

At lunch yesterday, for instance, I had the pleasure, here in SC, of reading The Washington Post, reviewed David Broder's take on our pending SC Primary, read two articles on the Capitals-turnaround and got the latest on our new Nationals Stadium. I was off line, the unit was booksize, so no computer, and when done, no paper to take to a landfill or recycle.

All in all, a more than acceptable trade off, and its delivered wirelessly before I get up--no computer involved.

I was born and raised in DC----in 7 or 8 more years, we will move back, but in the meantime, thank you, Kindle!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Coffee and the Post December 7, 2007
I am lucky enough to have a Kindle and receive the Post on a trial basis. Of course, the Kindle is a miracle and now I have a quality, easy to manage newspaper delivered to my Kindle in time for my early rising and that first cup of coffee. What a miracle of ease and function! The Post is easy to navigate on the Kindle and it will now be my paper of choice. The price is right for quality news reporting. I can barely remember life without my Kindle and I have only had it for a week!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now actually reading the paper July 4, 2008
I subscribed to the paper edition of the Washington Post for many, many years. But several years ago I finally decided to stop delivery. I just found that the paper generally found its way to the recycle pile without having had much more than a glance at the headlines on the front page and a maybe few of the sections.

When I got my Kindle earlier this year I took advantage of the 14 day free trial and have been a happy subscriber ever since. It is very convenient to read in many situations where reading the print edition would be awkward or inappropriate. I find scanning the articles much easier to do on the Kindle than the paper edition.

My new morning routine involves quickly scanning the article list for each section and if it looks interesting I open the article and then bookmark it. Then throughout the day when opportunities arrive, I can go back and read the bookmarked articles. The only drawback with that is that all the bookmarks are named "next article".

I didn't realize how attached I had gotten to my Washington Post e-delivery until I was in an area without Whispernet access and missed a few days.

A few additional things that I would like to see: a few photos would be nice, the weather section (I enjoy looking at the worldwide highs/lows and forecasts), the Sunday Book section best seller lists (I think most Kindle owners are into books), and what can I say, the one section I used to read most frequently, the comics.

I especially liked the fact that she included a positive about the police instead of just trashing them. I think she expressed a sentiment that we all feel.

Color Screen
I can not say if the advertisements are included, but I can assure you that if they are, they are not in color as the Kindle does not have a color display.

Cost of a Kindle WaPo subscription is outrageous!
I went on the Post's web page and digital subscriptions plus the Sunday print edition is $34/year. I'm not sure if I'm mis-reading this or not, but you may want look there.

No Washington Post for 2 December 2010?
I'm having the same problem today. There was a day in the past where they sent a message that "The Kindle Edition Is Late Today." Today: No message and no issue. What's up?
