5.0 out of 5 stars great content, unforgivable formatting--now improved, November 2, 2009
This review is from: The Times Literary Supplement (Kindle Edition)
I love reading the essays in TLS and I can deal with the strange formatting that appears to occur when a hard return and space at the end of the line are completely deleted to form run-on words. But in the last several weeks, they've started leaving out the book information. All you get is the title of the essay and the name of its author--you have to guess what books they're reviewing. And you would be surprised the number of writers who can turn out 1500+ words without ever mentioning the title of the book they're discussing or the full name of its author. Honestly, I do not have the words to express the idiocy of this, and I can't figure out how to complain about it--to Amazon? To TLS?

Update 1/11/10
Interestingly, shortly after I wrote the above review, the formatting issues have been cleared up, especially the return of the book info. I waited for a while to update to be sure the improvements were permanent, and so far so good. Thanks to whoever took care of it! It's a joy to read TLS on the Kindle for the wide range of books covered--from strictly academic tomes to popular murder mysteries.

You can simply read TLS online, correctly formatted and free of charge if I'm not mistaken. No?

The more Kindle (and iPad) subscribers there are, the sooner that may come to an end.

No you can't. Only selected highlights, not the whole thing. Considering trying this, for that reason.

Are you able to access the online TLS archives on your computer if you have a Kindle subscription? If so, how did you get the code? TLS is not always the easiest to deal with on such matters . . . Thank you!

Dear M. Masulli
I love the e-ink. I used to read on my iPhone, which is good when you're in a pinch or cannot have the kindle handy. But I'm just uncomfortable reading for long periods on a LCD screen, much more on a PC monitor that is plagued with distractions.
