    Electronic Versions of WoodWorking Magazines

    Well, Sharon got me the 1975-2010 version of Fine Woodworkings magazine archive. I love it. I've got the entire archive and it takes up almost no space on my bookshelves.

    Now here's the question, I wish I could cancel my paper subscription and just get it monthly electronically. Do you know of any magazines that do that? Do you think they will ever move that way?

    And I don't really mean a website that updates content monthly, but I'd like to get the PDF of the honest to goodness paper version.

    Just wondering if I'm alone in that way of thinking....

    Woodworking Magazine use to do that before it combined back to Popular Woodworking last year. I am not sure I am ready to give up a hard copy on some magazines yet.

    The archive DVD is pretty neat, isn't it. I wish the search feature was a little more robust though.

    I need to call Fine Woodworking about getting just the update for the year 2010. I saw the information once, but can't find it now. I have the 1975-2009 DVD.

    That's pretty neat, but that's a lot of scratch.

    Yeah, 149$ for 35 years worth of magazines. That's a lot of info.

    I like paper magazines, but I'm trying to get rid of my pack rat mentality.

    Along the same lines, my wife gave me the complete (25 years?) of Wood magazine on DVD this year for my xmas gift. Therefore, should anyone want the 15 (or more) years of back issues I presently have, please let me know ASAP and, for the shipping costs, their yours. Otherwise, they're going in the recycling bin.

    I love old mags, but my wife would kill me if 100lbs of magazines showed up on the doorstep.

    That would be great, but what would you read in the can?

    Ugh, a vision of a IPAD just popped into my head. Talk about unsanitary!
