Excellent enewspaper, but I live on the East Coast (EST).

I subscribed to this enewspaper for several days and I really liked it. The formatting is among the best I've seen. The articles are concise (a major plus for me). The only problem I had is that I didn't receive it until after 7am EST. Makes sense, when you think about ...

The only problem I had is that I didn't receive it until after 7am EST. Makes sense, when you think about it, as that's 4am PST. If I lived on the West Coast, I would have maintained my subscription. But since I live on the East Coast, I cancelled my subscription in favor of an East Coast enewspaper. My work day starts at 7am EST and I wish to read today's news with coffee prior to starting the workday.

Need more work

Comparing to the actual hard copy newspaper, this e-version still lacks many features. It is fine if one just wants to read headline stories.

    Enjoyable read

    This was my first eNewspaper trial and I originally stopped it before the 14-days were up. While sampling other publications I found myself wishing I hadn't stopped the SJMN. It is a great read with in-depth enjoyable content with most of the content external to SJ. I'm glad I restarted my subscription!

    Great Paper / Wrong coast

    I love the Mercury News and subscribed for its tech coverage and the Bay Area buzz. Unfortunately my Nook subscription arrives after I leave for work at 8am on the East coast. I still enjoy the articles even though I'm always a day behind.
