I've been hesitant to join the digital reading age. I love books and magazines, but it's just not the same on a Kindle or iPad. However, as tablets become more popular I'm realizing there are a lot of great reasons to go digital. How nice would it be to have all your magazine subscriptions along with you when you travel this holiday season?
There are also some great magazines that are only available online such as foodiecrush. I loved several articles in the most recent winter edition. It seems like digital magazines are here to stay and I need to get with the times.
Have you heard of Zinio? I hadn't until this week, and was surprised to find that all of my favorite magazines such as Saveur, Food Network, Cook's Illustrated, Vegetarian Times, Martha Stewart Living, Everyday with Rachel Ray, Eating Well, and Whole Living are available.
Zinio currently has a couple of great sales going on. 50% off 300 plus titles, including many I currently subscribe to, so it's not just the crap magazines they've got on sale :) Plus 30% off the holiday issues from Better Homes and Gardens.
Are you familiar with the special holiday issues? I'm always tempted when I see them at grocery store checkouts. You know, ones like Food Gifts, Holiday Baking, 100 Best Cookies, and Christmas Baking. In fact, last year I bought Food Gifts and I've got several pages marked with ideas I still need to try.
If you like the idea of digital magazine subscriptions, you'll be happy to know that I'm giving away 9 digital subscriptions courtesy of Zinio (any title). For a chance to win, please leave a comment with the title of the magazine you're hoping to get. Giveaway ends 12/16/12.
Disclosure: I received one free digital subscription in exchange for this blog post.
