Amazon Prime for the win

I have a tablet on my dinner table and during meals, I often peruse AskMetaFilter or flip through Zolt News or read magazines.

I hate the individual magazine apps. The library's magazine app isn't much better so last year I bought a year's subscription to the Texture app and it's almost worse than the other two. I just want to flip pages and read words. I don't want to have to click on shit to see words and then try to guess how to get back to where I was. I had vowed to go back to tree killing old fashioned paper magazines when my Texture subscription expires.

Except. Now. Maybe... I won't have to.

When I turned on the tablet tonight there was a little note from Amazon saying that they had books and magazines free for me to read as a Prime Member. And, I'll be damned if they don't!! There are now lots of free, very interesting looking books. But there are a pile of really interesting looking magazines.

And they are the kind with all the words on the page and you must flip through!!! No more guessing or clicking. Just flip, read and flip. People, Entertainment Weekly, Martha Stewart, HGTV and more. And they are on my phone, too. I'm so jazzed about this. I feel like there's got to be a hitch somewhere but I haven't found it yet.

Very cool.
