4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle subscription to HBR just not suitable for my needs, 21 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Harvard Business Review (Kindle Edition)
I have had to cancel my kindle subscription to HBR after 6 months. I will now be subscribing direct through the HBR website for £9.08 a month instead of £3.99. That said I would not have subscribed to HBR direct at that price if I hadn't dipped a toe in the water with the Kindle version first as with an HBR direct subscription you can only pay per year, whereas with Kindle you get a trial period and can cancel at any time having made only monthly payments. I have had to take this decision for two reasons. The first and most annoying is that a Kindle subscription does not make me an HBR subscriber so I do not get access to all the online HBR content. The second is (and I find this with Kindle in general)the Kindle edition of anything is great if all you want is a linear read. However there are articles in HBR that I want to reference, re-read, save for later and I struggle to do this with the Kindle Keyboard, the IPad Kindle app and the Android Kindle app. As far as content goes I think HBR is great, just not compatible with the Kindle format for and my reading needs.
