First-rate periodical For content I would certainly give 5 stars. However, we need more than just a simple scan of the magazine to make it more readable on tablet devices, especially 7 inch tablets like the Nexus 7. Take a look at how the Wilson Quarterly uses their own app to make a beautiful reading experience. Hopefully Google Play Magazines can come up with something like that too. For now, I'm relying on the text mode, which is adequate.
good content, bad service other magazines allow print subscribers to have online access. NYRoB does not. it would be nice if that changed.
I have read this periodical from its origin and subscribed for many years to date. Always its reviews of sets of subject-related books by authorities please and inform and recommendations of authors and critics at years-end provide me with a surfeit of titles for my list, as do the publishers' ads. Nor am I exhausting the kinds of intellectual pleasure in every issue of NRB.
