This is a review of the Kindle edition of the NYROB. I subscribed to it recently and have read two issues on the kindle app on i-pad and the Kindle device. Same subscription allows you to send the magazine to as many kindle devices as you own. NYROB is my favourite literary fortnightly where the reviews are often more literate than the books being reviewed. As an example, see Daniel Mendelsohn's review of 'The Stranger's Child' in the current issue. If you like the London Review of Books, you will love this. (LROB started as a supplement of NYROB before going on its own).I am so glad such a quality magazine is available at such a competitive price. Layout is quite good and reading, particularly on the Kindle device, is quite painless. (I-pad reading can get tiresome after a while as the articles tend to be quite long; average length 3-4000 words and it can be a bit of a pain in the sunlight)
I am keeping a star as there is an important feature missing from this electronic version. There is no information on the contributors, which in the paper version occupies almost a whole page. I sincerely hope this oversight is corrected soon.
Another good point; one doesn't get locked in for a whole year. There is a standard two week free trial and after that, one can still cancel anytime paying only for the issues up-to that point.
Overall, highly recommended for those who take their reading seriously!
