    Love books too but too heavy for bedtime reading it says online if you get a subscription the ipad version is free-am fed up of old mags everywhere and i thought one could highlight snippets and save them in clippings thanks for interest flowerimage

  • your right ,sounds like a good idea ,I get fed up with reading old mags and they are pricey too!image

    I got one too-but the script is quite small- it just a 7 inch tablet after all even though you can magnify it-I would think trying to read a full colour magazine would be awkward-won't be botheringimage-not even sure it is available is it?image

    Daniel Haynes answered that question here:

    The answer seems to be 'yes'.

    Though I'm not a Kindler and haven't actually seen the mag on an Android tablet.

    You are rightimage

    Just seen a review -takes a long time to download and is as I feared difficult to read.

    So will pass.

    I subscribe to magazine and so get free download, which means I can read it on my ipad at the same time other half can read the paper magazine. Has saved us loads of arguments, "You finished with that yet?" After 12 months I give mt old mags to the local Alzheimer's Society who use them for their reminiscence groups.
