5.0 out of 5 stars What the Kindle was made for 17 Jan. 2012
By William Burn VINE VOICE
On paper the London Review of Books is pretty daunting, all tiny text and crinkly A3 pages. That's one of the reasons I like it so much: it sends a very clear signal to everyone else in the room that I don't want to be disturbed, and the lack of pictures makes reading over my shoulder nigh-on impossible. Add to that the rich diet of book reviews, 'op-ed' pieces, and excellent poetry, all written by leading experts in their fields, and you've a real treat every couple of weeks.

And now the Kindle edition appears, and I'm delighted with it. Not only do I have a one-click dictionary to clear up all the words I don't understand (and there are always a few), but it is at last truly transportable and no longer a right chore to read in bed. Great stuff. If only they could solve the problem of other people thinking I'm reading Pam Ayres, and it would be perfect.

A warning: Kindle subscriptions do not include access to the LRB website, so you won't be able to access past issues and the LRB archive as other subscribers do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for occasional readers 25 July 2012

I used to subscribe to LRB but found I did not have time to read it all and read books as well. But I used to like to buy an issue as a treat when travelling , or on holiday . However Waterstones stopped stocking the magazine, I suppose they had to make space for selling drinks and expensive notebooks, and my local University bookshop closed down and I only managed to get hold of issues when travelling to London. Thanks to the Kindle edition it's now a pleasusre restored. It's easy to navigate and read in the Kindle format. The only thing missing are the adverts, not normally an issue with most magazines but I miss the LRB adverts.

Excellent content; excellent value. A miracle to able to purchase these sort of journals wherever I am travelling as long as there is wi-fi of course.

Wonderfully eclectic, insightful, and generally well written, without excessive jargon or verbosity that frequently accompanies academic writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great representation of the Zeitgeist 13 Dec. 2012

Lovely to dip into. Would that the supplier of the e-format might 'dip into' its pockets and contribute a fair sum to the national resources.

But why is it cheaper to buy a single issue than to subscribe?
that doesn't make any sense.
