Finally The New York Times Book Review is available in the Kindle format! This is a book review that no book lover can afford to miss. The quality of the reviews is always very high, and the books reviewed are the ones you would definitely be curious about. At the end of each edition, you have bestseller lists with prices and short descriptions of the books in each category of the bestseller list.

The New York Times Book Review works very well in the Kindle format. Even the illustrations are preserved and, from the issues I have seen so far, the quality of the illustrations is pretty good. The price Amazon charges for a monthly subscription is, in my opinion, more than reasonable. It is definitely worth paying a couple of bucks to have a guaranteed access to this great book review the moment it comes out.

I am an avid fan of the NYT Book Review and am so glad it is available on the Kindle. However, given that I can buy the Kindle version of the entire Sunday Edition of the Times (including the full Book Review) for 99 cents each week, I'm not sure about the value of this subscription. The review is always a great read, but so are many other sections of the Sunday edition which includes the magazine, op eds, travel, and many other highlights. At 99 cents an issue, it is one of the best values around!

I really enjoy receiving the New York Times book review on my Kindle. Sure, I could read it online for free, but since I take my Kindle with me wherever I go, now I'm able to read the reviews at my leisure without being stuck at my computer. I also like the set up of this periodical and it's very easy to navigate. If you are reading a review that doesn't interest you, just push the 5 way controller button to the right and it automatically goes to the next review. The pictures are nice and are sized to fit the Kindle screen without being distorted or too big for the page.

My husband gave me the new wireless/3G Kindle for Xmas this year, and I have been adding ebooks for hours on end! I have just subscribed to the NYT Book Review, and find it surprisingly very well adjusted to the screen with great photos and other illustrations. As I am a fast reader, I really enjoy thumbing through the pages via the Kindle buttons vs turning the large pages of the hard copy magazine. Also, I don't need my glasses! Can't help being a bit euphoric right now - but the Kindle is beyond my expectations, and am delighted this publication translates so well to the Kindle format. Already reading reviews of books have seen on various Kindle lists that I'd like to get. A must for book lovers.

By Laura on May 13, 2011
Alas, my paper issues of the Book Review have been arriving in sad and battered condition. Maybe it is the stagecoach that delivers them here to Arizona, but somewhere along the line they are really roughed up. Now in addition to my gradually diminishing eyesight, I have to battle the crumbled up pages. So I thought I would try the Kindle edition. Perhaps I missed something, but it seemed that the Kindle edition does not include letters to the editor (from the front section) or the essay usually found on the last page. These may not be important features to some readers, but I was disappointed. The letters to the editor usually put some of the reviews into perspective or correct reviewer errors. And the essays at the end of the Book Review are often very good. The description states that not all sections are included in the Kindle edition, so perhaps these are the items. I will update this review if I see either item in further editions. You can check this yourself with a two week free trial. UPDATE 5/23/11 I see that the section on the back page IS there. HOWEVER, after a two week trial I have decided to wait for the iPad app if it becomes available in the future. It is pretty dense and hard to read on a Kindle.

I used to buy a copy of The New York Times Book Review every week to keep up with the new books being published. When I moved to a small town I lost touch with the publication, and I missed it. With the advent of the internet, I thankfully renewd contact, but I missed being able to settle down in a comfortable chair and getting acquainted with many of the new fiction and non-fiction works.

The selection of books to review are very good, and the editors do a good job of pairing up knowledgable reviewers to give their opinions. For fiction titles, the reviewer has usually read author's previous novels, and for non-fiction the reviewer is usually an expert in the field being written about, sometimes having authored a similar title. The opinions given are candid, with dislikes, as well as likes, freely shared. I sometimes go back and reread a review of a book that I have finished, to sharpen the extra perspective that has given me about the book.

The Kindle edition is well organized. It's easy to jump back and forth between the reviews and the table of contents which is grouped into sections. As you move down the section listing, the titles of the reviews are listed to the right. I would rather have the book titles and authors listed, but this arrangement works alright because one click of the right button takes you the start of the first review in that section, and from there, each click of the right button takes you to the next review which begins with the book title. (I assume the touch-screen kindles are equally easy to navigate.)

I usually go to the NYT Book Review website first to check which books are being covered.
