The St. Petersburg Times, Florida's largest newspaper, has long possessed a reputation for quality and independence. Owned by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, this innovative newspaper won its two most recent Pulitzer prizes in 2009: one in feature writing and another in national reporting. The newspaper circulates in the Tampa Bay area and beyond, providing incisive, in-depth coverage of local, state and national news, sports and entertainment. It maintains local news bureaus in its four-county home base, as well as bureaus in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.

The SPT is a good newspaper. This review is geared towards how this works with the Kindle. As expected, the newspaper was on my Kindle when I woke up. I found the information well organized and the content to be easy to navigate. I was able to quickly navigate to the article of interest and skip past the one that I was not interested in. Images are a challenge. Overall, i was able to quickly access paper, find and read my interest and then get on with day. I look forward to the day when eReaders in general are better suited for newspapers but for now, this will do just fine.

I've always subscribed to the St Pete Times since I've lived in the area (St Pete and Tampa), and I love it. My personal politics/beliefs don't always coincide with their opinion sections/editors, but I can still overlook our differences and realize it's really a @#$%ing fantastic paper.

I'm horrible at getting around to recycling and Catholic guilt kills me, so I said in a conversation "if they had an electronic version, I'd buy one of them there Kindle thingies". Found out they did, ordered a Kindle, and immediately subscribed to the electronic version. A quick version of this review -- yesterday I called the St Pete Times and had them convert my daily subscription to Sunday-Only.

Cons:
- I miss the layout (visual) of the paper.
- Less stories make it.
- Less pictures make it (St Pete Times has AWESOME photographers!)

Pros:
- While I miss the layout.. I find the "shotgunning" of the articles finds me quickly reading the articles I want to read in depth, but still skimming through and getting the basic gist (sp?) of ALOT more of the news. I find that I'm actually reading way more of the paper.
- It's there when I wake up in the morning -- I'll be honest, on weekends, I found I'd read most of the paper by the web version before I'd bother breaking out of my cave and venturing out in the burning sunlight to grab the physical paper, so now it's available with a nice small portable device. Much better for the lazy vampires like me to haul into the bathroom for my "morning meditation" than a full laptop.

Cons I really want fixed:
- Less stories. My biggest problem -- today is likely the last non-Sunday I'll get the paper, and I compared it to the electronic version.

The Kindle edition of the St Pete Times is wonderful to read and undoubtedly convenient. Great images sprinkled through out and most of the same content you see in the printed edition.

The only format issue I have is the upcoming sporting events in the sports section. The grid is huge, the text is small and its just poorly formatted.

The rest of the problems stem from the content being cherry picked as this is not the entire paper in digital form. You get most of the "good" and "relevant" articles but it is still feels lite. Sunday editions are probably the biggest let down due to lack of sale adds and other inserts.

Which brings up the price. If the St Pete Times offers a FULL digital edition at half the price of the Kindle edition on the St Pete Times website... I don't feel like I'm getting a good deal here. While its less than the print edition per year and you don't have ads in this edition at all... it just feels a little pricy. I know Amazon takes a cut but still...

UPDATE

I decided to re-subscribe and add a star. The reason is because I left town for the first time (since subscribing) and having the Kindle edition was amazing. I didn't miss a thing going on back home. I've read the paper more on the kindle than I have in the last 8 years living in this area. The ability and familiar feel of browsing a news paper is not lost in the kindle, it's just a little different and took time to get used to.

Good way to receive daily news reporting. Ideology per swaged editorial content. Selective limited content did not include all major articles included in same day printed release. Advertisement was not included, with no coupons, no Jumble, no weather, no tide table, no comics, very limited.

I must be a traditionalist when it comes to newspapers. I tried the electronic version over a year ago when it was still the St. Pete Times and was disappointed in what it lacked. Not as many photos, no letters to the editor, limited editorials, no comics. I tried it again recently and nothing has changed (I have a Kindle DX). I've recently bought a tablet (an Android product) and plan to experiment with that. I currently have the printed newspaper home delivered but would like to go electronic if the end product is acceptable.

I got a trial subscription during the republican convention, although I don't live in Florida. I have subscribed to two dailies in Wisconsin, and also a national paper on Kindle, and I like this one the best of those four. It has a good selection of local/Tampa-area stories, plus a number of national and international articles each day. The writing is good; the selection of wire stories is good; and the organization is good. I recommend the paper, especially for Floridians.
