Product Description

Noted as the bestselling consumer magazine in America, the family-oriented Reader's Digest Express aims to "inform, entertain and inspire." The RD Express features articles on a variety of different topics ranging from politics to health to entertainment.

The Kindle Edition of Reader's Digest contains most of the articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand.

Customer Reviews:

  • Love it.
    Looks great, you can skip ahead to the next article, if the one you're reading isn't hitting a home run, has pictures, and jokes......looks like Reader's Digest to me!...more info
  • Engaging material, with graphics that stand out
    Can't say I've subscribed yet, but I have picked up an occasional issue of Reader's Digest on the Kindle. It's a good mix of light feature pieces (an entertaining profile of actor Pierce Brosnan was a good read) and long, detailed investigative articles (good one on the airline industry in the same issue). You also get actual captioned cartoons (a rarity on the Kindle!) and other fun elements.

    You also get another bonus. If there's one criticism I have of Kindle blogs and magazines, it's visual sameness. The New York Times looks like Newsweek which looks like The Philadelphia Inquirer, etc. But Reader's Digest on the Kindle looks like, well... Reader's Digest. You get the sharp, catchy graphics of the print edition (with the headline and sub-headlines of a story often embedded within the main photo just like in the regular magazine), and other pieces of visual flair- like the cartoons mentioned earlier- carried over from the magazine, too. I guess it's a small point (as content is really the most important thing), but it's nice seeing a Kindle magazine that looks truly different from other Kindle magazines. With luck this will be the beginning of a trend.

    But, yeah, give an issue a shot. Even if you usually read weightier fare on your Kindle, you may just find the content and visual flair of Reader's Digest on the Kindle to be an occasional refreshing change.

    Note: Amazon frequently updates the presentation and functionality of Kindle blogs and periodicals, so as this review gets older, it may no longer accurately describe the current version of this product.

  • Not a magazine!!!
    Way low fidelity. It's like reading basic html pages. It's fine for newspapers and I'm fine reading the WSJ this way but I miss the images, color, and the visual experience of reading a magazine. I admit that I may be biased since I work for a company that produces, sells and distributes digital magazines that are exact replicas of the print edition... ...more info
  • RD - Where's the Beef?
    I'm a long time reader and lover of Reader's Digest. What a disappointment to find so much of the paper digest's content missing from the Kindle version. I love it enough to subscribe but won't until they flesh it out a bit more. Give it another go RD and then we'll talk....more info
