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.

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.

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.

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

I love the London Review of Books and I love my Kindle. Together, they seem like a great combination and a little over 2 pounds I think this is an irresistible buy!
