The Economist is simply the best weekly newspaper on the market. The articles are great, and the in-depth reports are even better. The nook color version is wonderful because I now get the publication when it is released. In the USA I would previously receive it up to four days (it is published on Thusdays, but subscription services for the print version do not concider it late until after 7 days). This is a problem as it is a news paper and getting it late makes is almost useless.

Really amazing print subscription - wish I had free access on my NOOK

I am a long time subscriber of the print Economist. With many of my other print subscriptions I am able to get them also on my NOOK for free. The Economist does not include the NOOK subscription with the print version. I suggest they include it the way they do for iPad ...
I am a long time subscriber of the print Economist. With many of my other print subscriptions I am able to get them also on my NOOK for free. The Economist does not include the NOOK subscription with the print version. I suggest they include it the way they do for iPad as that is not the only tablet out there. Just a thought!

    incredibly good. best magazine there is

    I can't recommend this enough. Unbiased, technically excellent. The world coverage lets me stay abreast of what's going on outside the US and the US coverage is nice because they're not all wrapped up in the politics. No fluff.

    One of the best, maybe THE best

    An authoritative, non-partisan, intellectual voice on world issues/events.
    Please make this available for NOOK Simple Touch!!!

    I have been waiting for the economist to show up on the nook and I feel I am now on top of what the world is up to.

    Not supported on Nook Simple Touch

    I love my Nook Simple Touch, and respect The Economist. Unfortunately, the Economist isn't supported by NST. ...sigh.

    Love it, but formatting problems persist

    Hands down, the best news mag. Problem is that I'll get issues where the Article View format is messed up. The text all runs together (no paragraph breaks or bold headers or graphics), and words with the letter 'f' are missing letters. This has happened for the past two weeks, so I think it's time to cancel, with many regrets.

    The Best Weekly Magazine for information about our world

    I subscribe to and read the print version of the Economist. Unfortunately Barnes and Noble doesn't offer the free emagazine version for print subscribers as it does for many other magazines. A pity!

    Despite this shorcoming, I highly recommend this magazine!
