Default Magazine Digital Online Editions

I noticed when I renewed my magazine subscriptions that almost half of them offer a free digital edition along with the normal print edition..I'm no fool, I know they are trying to wean their subscribers from print to digital to save trees($$$$$) and raise their rates

I don't mind, but I draw the line at 2 main points..1) I don't want a digital edition of Playboy Magazine...2) I prefer the print edition of all my magazines to read on mylibrary throne rather then taking my laptop

for those cruisemates that have magazine subscriptions..do you prefer to read online editions or do you prefer print editions ?..every 6 months I donate my magazines to my barbershop and also the local VA hospital (guess which magazine they look forward to)..what do you do with your magazines once you are thru reading them?

Online. I like having them always with me, saves trees, saves space. I get them quicker and they're cheaper.

I currently subscrible online to:
Harpers Bazaar
Weight Watchers
Lonely Planet
Gourmet Traveller

All come through my Ipad

Hawaii By land x 2
Paris and German Christmas Markets

I prefer 100 times, no 1000 times more to have the in-hand version. I want to be able to curl up on the couch and read. I don't want to be tied to the computer all the time. And then, when I'm done, I want to pass them along to someone else to enjoy!
