Thread Name: Sing Out Magazine ?
Subject: RE: Sing Out Magazine ?
I just tried reading Sing Out! via Zinio on my laptop, and it also matches the print copy exactly. The desktop/laptop Zinio reader has several reader controls along the bottom of the screen that you can use to set preferences for layout, zoom in, etc. The only real difference for me is that reading while holding the tablet in my hands feels a bit more like reading a print magazine. But content wise, there's no difference.
It also occurred to me that you might be able to find copies of Sing Out! in your area library, if that's convenient in terms of location and schedule. Perhaps you could even read the digital edition that way.
Lin - I still have a landline too - and a very old home phone that isn't portable, so I can relate! I'm in NY, and I usually use a Kindle reader on the subway, but often read print books at home, so I like both. I used to notice more Kindles on the subway, but now I see mainly cell phones/tablets or actual print books. I'll have to notice next time I take the railroad here (as opposed to the subway). I have a feeling most people on those trains will be reading electronically.
Jane - I hope you enjoy using Zinio if you decide to try it. I've used it for magazines that are now only digital, or in cases where the digital version costs much less than the print version. I think that Sing Out! has made the digital version free for print subscribers - I seem to remember that's how I ended up with both versions.
