5.0 out of 5 stars Same Price, None of the Clutter of the Print Version, 1 April 2012
This review is from: BBC History Magazine (Kindle Edition)
I haven't subscribed to BBC History Magazine in print version because (1) it's too expensive at around six dollars an issue, (2) the many ads in the print magazine give it a cluttered look.

There are no ads in the Kindle version. (I haven't noticed ads in any Kindle magazines, I wonder how long that can last...)

The Kindle version looks fabulous on the Kindle Fire, the photos and illustrations are beautiful. They are a little washed out and hard to make out on the Kindle Keyboard, as expected.

The content appears to be complete, aside from the ads: book reviews, feature articles, lots of short items are included. The frequent contributions of Dominic Sandbrook are especially welcome, as he makes anything, even the post office, quite fascinating. Not surprisingly, the history is skewed toward all things British, but they try to appeal to readers around the world.

I've been listening to the BBC History Magazine podcast for over a year now, and I'm glad to be able to finally add the magazine.
