I read DIE ZEIT for 10 years now and to have it on Kindle was a revolution since that format allows you to read it from A-Z and furthermore on time outside Gernany.
DIE ZEIT is unique and living in the US and the UK I can say there is not any one newspaper or magazine that comes close to its level of journalism - its in a class of its own. It has a very broad spectrum of topics [politics, science, economics, literature, children, travel]. Besides their journalists also politician, writers, scientists, celebrities and their own readers write articles. Die Zeit is very independent, not political/socially opinionated. I find more than 80% of articles extremely well written, deeply analyzed, highly sophisticated and innovative. I also find it astonishing that die Zeit is surviving - even increasing volume - in times where many papers struggle and where we are flooded by cheap superficial online journalism and 'junk - media'.
