5.0 out of 5 stars Might be better than in print., October 28, 2011
This review is from: The New York Review of Books (Kindle Edition)
This is my favorite periodical and I have to say it is easier to read on the Kindle than in print. It is with me at all times and is great to read when I have a few minutes free or am riding on the train. The Kindle format is very good for text-based periodicals. The only thing missing are the ads, which are sometimes interesting for book ideas, but that is a small deficiency. I love reading on my Kindle and I would keep it even if NYRB was the only thing available on it.

UPDATE Nov. 20: I'm now using a Kindle Fire for this subscription and it provides a wonderful rendering of the print edition, including photographs but not including ads.

Update Dec. 27: Now includes the full print edition (including ads). You can still read in text view or view the actual print edition. Excellent value. (BTW, Amazon mistakenly sent the January 12 issue early and incomplete and gave subscribers a free month for the inconvenience. The full issue came on the scheduled date. Can't beat Amazon for great customer service.)
