I've surprised myself with how much I like it!,
This review is from: The Guardian and the Observer (Kindle Edition)I've been reading The Guardian for 40 years... that kind of a newspaper habit is about more than just the content. I signed up for the 14-day trial, more than half expecting not to like it, and expecting to miss the 'thingness', the materiality of the actual paper paper.
My motivation for the try-out was basically environmental - to reduce my contribution to carbon emissions from all that trucking heavy paper around.
But I love it! It's been well thought-out, it's easily navigable, the headline pages look like The Guardian.
Pity about the crosswords and the Sudoku, but I'm not an addict, so I can live without them. Real pity to miss Steve Bell and Doonesbury... but, again, I can live without them.
Additional bonus: the paper won't arrive an hour late in the school holidays, because the paper boy didn't get out of bed!
Downsides: it takes business away from my small, local independent newsagent; and there won't be that useful pile of old newspapers for all the little jobs around the house... wrapping broken china or used cat litter, and so on.
