I love Zinio!

Thank you to whomever posted earlier about Zinio. I am so enjoying it. I always have loved magazines, but I would restrain myself because it was such a pain to store them. Now, I feel like I do not have to restrain myself. I have three subscriptions already and am thinking of getting more.

I worried briefly about the DRM issue, but then I realized that most information in magazines is not timeless anyway---I won't want to save it all for twenty years, necessarily. So if there is something I do want to save---I mostly am reading cooking and fitness magazines, so these are things like recipes, workout routines and monthly calendars with a tip a day sort of thing---I just use the screenshot feature, save the page I want, and then it's a regular old image I can store in iPhoto and do what I want with, the same way I used to clip articles from fitness magazines and store them in a binder.

And they are a good value, too. The cooking magazine was less than $15 for an entire year's worth of issues. I pay less than a book cost, once, and get a little present every month I am enjoying it so much.

I am thinking of getting Yoga Journal, Food Network Magazine, Oprah Magazine, Body + Soul and National Geographic. I would never buy so many in one month if it were paper, but with e-magazine, it's so handy and I can read them as much as I want and not worry about paper.
