1.0 out of 5 stars Guardian Newspaper, December 29, 2011
This review is from: The Guardian and the Observer (Kindle Edition)
I have used The Guardian as a prime source of European and UK news for over 40 years here in Australia. I used to have air mail copies sent then have used their home page as a news source. Excited when I got a KINDLE for Christmas and have subscribed to the 14 day trial. Its a good condensation of the paper and I am enjoying it. However the cost is so EXPENSIVE at $18.00 a month.

Its not the full paper and I understand this but I will want a lot more for my money than I getting now in the form of content. I can have the actual newspaper delivered (via Australia Post) for $235.00 a year and the KINDLE edition is $216.00 a year....!!! Not very good value at all.

I get more from the web site at no cost.

FIVE STARS for quality content (what little there is)

ONE STAR for value!!!

How do you get The Guardian for $235 a year? I can't find the Australian price on The Guardian site, but the seven-day-a-week subscription is 31.24GBP per month (http://www.guardian.co.uk/subscriber/subscribe-to-the-guardian-and-observer) which comes out to 374.88GBP or 549.79 Australian Dollars.

(I know the Guardian on the Kindle has come down in price in the UK, it was more expensive before, but I still don't see how your numbers add up).
