The print edition of the Nation is not a glossy magazine and does not rely heavily on graphics, so it's well suited to the Kindle format. Even though Kindle does support jpegs and could handle far more graphical content that is supplied with other magazines and newspaper Kindle subscriptions, this isn't as problematic with the Nation as it, say, with the New York Times, where very few pictures or charts are included with articles, even in cases where the articles make reference to charts that aren't produced.
Further, the price is right here. You're paying less for four issues the Nation than you are for several of the monthly magazines that they're offering Kindle subscriptions for.
Of course, why they take out the advertisements, graphics, etc, in the Kindle editions of these magazine continues to amaze me. The Nation's classifieds, which could easily be included in the Kindle are almost always a fun read.
The Nation is a perfect fit for the Kindle format.
- It's all text (making Kindle formatting a snap)
- It's serious (articles are of decent length and depth)
- It's a weekly, so there's no need to leave your wireless on all the time
- It's cheap, and would be good deal even if it weren't -- the Kindle subscription costs exactly half of the dead-tree edition.
To me, it makes a lot more sense to get this slim little pamphlet electronically than on paper. It's still portable, but much more green and mess-free on the Kindle. The 150-year-old magazine is a wonderful complement to the Washington Post.
The Nation's issues are well organized, sometimes thematically linked, and the articles well written with ample depth. I find myself learning about global issues that normally are not even touched on in the usual "lowest common denominator" fare on TV. Happenings in the arts and sciences are also covered.
The Nation comes out once a week, which I find to be a good rate of publication for a magazine of this type. You don't get the breathless "breaking news" type of reporting (a la Wolf Blitzer) in The Nation, which I find refreshing, but the issues are current and usually of considerable importance. The editors have time to be editors and the writers have time to do their homework. It's a more measured, intelligent approach to the world than we've gotten used to with cable news and screaming-head blogs.
I do not find The Nation to be all that left-wing. On the contrary, I find a balance of perspectives from left (mostly left-of-center) to center-right. Importantly, there are no "Screaming of the Extremists" portions. There are well-articulated viewpoints and the occasional intelligent debate. I'd like to see more of that tone in our general discourse.
The Nation works great on the Kindle, and I find it very easy to get around each issue. So far, I have not encountered any typos either! I appreciate the work that goes into each issue.
The Nation works great on Kindle. The presentation is convenient and very easy to navigate. If you subscribe to the Kindle edition, you will get it before your friends do, which is a greata added bonus. And at this price, it's a very good deal.
Gives the progressive view and perspective always thoughtful and provocative. A Gold mine of information you can find nowhere else. It is the New Yorker for the left.
Yes, it is true that this magazine does come from a liberal perspective. I hope that other reviewers will evaluate this magazine fairly, based on its value and formatting for the Kindle, rather than its ideological perspective.
