Reading ebooks on your Kindle Paperwhite is fun, educative, relaxing and highly addictive. Perhaps, it’s the main reason why you want more than reading ebooks on your Kindle. Fortunately, there are a lot of newspaper, magazine and blog’s subscriptions that you can purchase on the Kindle Newsstand.
Before starting and managing the newspaper, magazine or blog’s subscriptions on your Kindle Paperwhite, keep in mind that there are items available for subscription:
- Magazines and newspapers in text view: you can navigate articles easily with the same reading experience as Kindle ebooks.
- Enriched newspaper editions: articles that include all images provided by the publisher. These images can be downloaded via Wifi.
- Special access for some Kindle newspaper subscribers: when you’re subscribed to the Kindle edition of The New York Times and/or The Wall Street Journal, your subscription also grants you additional access to these publications.
- Blogs: just like ebooks, blogs are displayed as one entry. Sync your device to download the blog’s feed so you can read blogs offline. Note: blogs are available for Amazon US and UK customers.
How to start your subscriptions
It is very easy to start a subscription to a newspaper, magazine or blog on your Kindle Paperwhite through the Kindle Store:
1. From the Home toolbar, tap the cart icon to select Kindle Store (see image below):
2. Select and tap on Newspapers or Magazines on the Amazon Kindle Store to locate subscription content for purchase (see image below):
Note: If you purchase a subscription content using your computer on Amazon, choose your Kindle Paperwhite as the device to send the content to.
3. Let’s say that you want to purchase a subscription to the National Geographic Magazine. Tap on it and you can see on the magazines details that this subscription starts with the first 30 days free (30-day Free Trial). In addition, you can also purchase the National Geographic Magazine per issue (Buy Current Issue).
Note: your Kindle magazine is auto-delivered wirelessly when the physical issue hits the newsstand.
