    The only thing I download to my Kindle is free books.
    I still prefer paper books and mags that I can pass around and refer back to.
    I have a library of keeper books that I just cant get rid of.

    I like my laptop and the things I can do with it, but it can never replace the feel of a book in my hands, or the pleasure of touching the papaer. I'm one who will pass on the ebooks and magazines. Downside of being a hands on book lover is the amount of space my books etc take up, cant get around that one!

    Bella - Thanks but it keeps giving me the message saying I do not
    have a subscription when I paid for it on Dec 1 2012.

    I have sent 3 emails with no response period. So today I am calling
    them and going to force the "ugly" head of nasty attitude back into
    the box.

    We will see if that helps.

    Sandy - I went directly to the McCalls website and purchased my subscription
    I get the print issue just fine, for BOTH McCalls Quilting and Quick Quilts, and
    I get the digital issue of the MCQ just fine.

Country Living got their act together and confirmed my subscription....and added a free year to compensate e for my aggravation.

    Lesson learned...buy digital magazines thru Zinio directly. They are the ones who set up the digital delivery.

    Thumbs up for Zinio. I've had good experiences with their customer service.

    I have to have my paper copies- I have to have something "tangible" or I file it and forget about it if it's on the computer. I read my magazines over and over and only keep the patterns or tips that i want. I do have a "tip"file on the computer I use, but I have to have patterns where I can just pick them up and look at and compare.

    I like the print versions of the quilt magazines better and am on the fence about digital copies; some I like some I don't.
    I have a space problem and will probably go digital but I don't think the software for the digital mags is very good.

    With e version can you delete what you don't want from it? At least I can cut out something I want then toss the rest w/hard copy or pass it on to someone else. Also, can you print out from comp. version

    You sound like me...I guess I am not hooked on this electronic age. Mags and books can't crash!!!! I have lost a "few" things on comp.
