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!

Beware - the economist is 'not compatible' with Nook Simple Touch. When I bought my Nook I specifically asked if I could read the economist on my Nook - I was assured this would be possible. Now I am being told it is 'not compatible'. NOT HAPPY!

Because I am a print subscriber I can get free access to the digital version on my iPad, but I cannot get free access on the NOOK. I would buy the NOOK if this worked.

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.

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

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.

People need to stop putting customer reviews for the economist on here, it is misleading. The Economist is great, the Economist {Nook Magazine} is not. I'm not sure who's fault it is, but customers should not have to pay for 2 subscriptions - i.e. one for the print/digital and another for the Nook. Unless you only read the economist at home, or you carry your Nook everywhere, go with a normal Economist print/digital subscription - it is more versatile.

I paid for the nook subscription, then it never appeared in my Nook library...after reading about the numerous problems with magazine purchases and the nook online, I'm done! Who has the time to spend hours figuring out what should be a simple process...Nook and B&N need to get it together...otherwise the IPAD revolution deserves to win, and I hate Apple!

I have a subscription to this for now. I read a few articles that might actually be relvant with my Economics class. I needed to page through this publication and last week's issue was definitely worth devoting the time to.

Very informative, a go-to source for topical news that covers the globe.

The current way it shows up on my W8 machine is great - I've rarely had formatting issues. HOWEVER, the fact that I have to pay twice is criminal for the print subscription. Please get this fixed.

The magazine is not formated for the nook. I found it difficult to read without zooming in and this required scrolling around to see the whole page

Reading this on a Nook is annoying. The formatting appears to be made for the iPad, and using 'Article View' is worthless as the whole point of using a Nook Tablet or Color is to enjoy the visual layout & design of a real magazine. Text-only editions are worthless.

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.

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

This is one of my favorite magazines but this format makes it very frustrating. One's only option is to plow ahead page by page, no searching the issue.

Dear Barnes & Noble, please fix this.

Didnt get the issue in my Nook. What happened?
Jairo Gomez More than 1 year ago
This magazine had alot of insightful concepts and projected a very positive scenario for many companies and countries. Unfortunately, it did not have what I was looking for at this time.

This is a great magazine with a generally balanced view, a rarity today. I'd be hard pressed to find fault with the facts they report or much bias. They lean to the right when speaking on economics, but you'll also find articles that lean to the left when speaking about the environment. The language gets a bit dense at times so don't expect this to be light reading. overall it's a great magazine with interesting insights on many topics.

I have very much enjoyed using my nook to read the Economist. However I have become more and more frustrated that I am not able to either comment nor send letters to the editor because the Economist does not recognize my subscription through Barnes and Noble. I have decided therefore to replace my Economist subscription with a Financial Times subscription for the nook. Thank you.
