Zinio: A Magazine-Lover’s Heaven

There are few things more relaxing than settling down with your favorite drink and a big stack of glossies. I do this rarely, for several reasons:
  • A “stack” of magazines is a hefty investment
  • My local newsstand is lacking in variety
  • “Glossies” are hard on the environment. Besides, they take up a lot of room on my living room floor…which is usually where they stay for weeks.
When I came across “the world’s largest newsstand” I found heaven. Zinio is a digital newsstand showcasing over 5,000 digital magazines with readers in more than 200 countries. But this isn’t just a place to purchase a digital subscription, it’s your digital magazine stack where you can search, save, and share stories with just a click!

With so many magazines how do you choose? You don’t have to. Zinio.com offers hundreds of articles you can read for free, or sign up for a Z-Pass. The Z-Pass allows you to receive three magazines for just five dollars per month with the option to change your choice of magazines at any time. Once you find a mag you love, you’ll also love the price. Zinio offers deep discounts on subscriptions along with “Daily Deals” that save you up to fifty percent!

Enjoy your Zinio library on your iPad, iPhone, Android mobile phone, tablet or laptop. The company has received awards and recognition for their reading apps from Inc. Magazine, Techcrunch, Consumer Choice, The Mobile World Congress, and others. I’ve been enjoying my magazine on my laptop. Initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect regarding visual quality as I’m still using XP, but I couldn’t be more pleased. My magazine is readable in full screen and includes a customizable “zoom” setting for those times I want a closer look.

Go ahead and check out their website—I’ll bet you find magazines you’ve never heard of! Read a few free articles, buy a Z-Pass, and come back here on June 12th for a special giveaway!
