I love my new Kindle Oasis and want to read everything on it. Books, magazines, newspapers. Everything. Can I? How can I subscribe to a Kindle edition magazine, for example?
Totally understand your enthusiasm for the Kindle Oasis, actually. Very nice features, a super high resolution 300dpi screen and the thinnest, lightest unit on the market. A definite win. And, of course, not having stacks of paper to recycle is great environmentally so I support that too!
Over the years, the Kindle platform has expanded and includes a ton of cool features and capabilities, not to mention a massive Kindle-ready library of books from authors big and small, same day availability of best sellers and, yes, special Kindle-friendly editions of major newspapers and a surprising variety of magazines.
And all of it revolves around logging in to the Amazon.com site through your Web browser (much easier than working on the Kindle itself, in my opinion, tho you can do that too). In fact, the Kindle Store is right there on the home page, off the “Departments” menu:
See where I’ve highlighted it? That’s what you want to click: Newsstand.
Click on that and I predict you’ll say “oohhhhh” and “ahhhh” like you’re at a fireworks show!
Here’s a bit of what I see:
I understand why Amazon would suggest Wired, Sound & Vision and Film magazine, but Nightmare Magazine? That’s a thing?? 🙂
Scroll down just a bit and you’ll see there are lots of different sections and individual publications highlighted, like the popular national news and analysis magazine The Economist:
That $9.99/mo is a steal for The Economist, by the way: The discounted annual subscription costs you almost $13/mo ($152/annually) for the print edition. Even better, you can try it out for an issue or two before you’re charged, as is much more obvious if you click to get more information:
At this point you can proceed by selecting the “deliver to” device — your Kindle Oasis! — then clicking on Try FREE for 30 days. Why not, right?
Then open up your Kindle and it should show up just about immediately. And that’s it. Every day, week or month, depending on publication, you’ll have new content to read on your Oasis. Super easy!
