Zinio Magazine Giveaway (ends 12/16)

Thanks to Zinio for offering up 10 free magazine subscriptions to share with our readers! Living in an apartment and being a total magazine junkie--I used to have more than 30 magazine subscriptions--some of them weeklies! eek! not to mention all the books--does not bode well for a clean and happy home. I still have several boxes of magazines I can't bear to get rid of (since I do re-read them or use them for reference), but now that digital subscriptions exist, I'm having an easier time converting and letting the paper copies go.

Use the Rafflecopter widget at the end of my post to enter the giveaway. I'll randomly pick 9 winners--I get to keep 1 for myself! (Definitely getting Interweave Knits :D)

Good luck!

Zinio has 300 magazine titles available at up to 50% off already-discounted prices.

Here are some of my favorites:

American Craft
Brain World
Poets & Writers


Interweave Knits


Go to http://www.zinio-deals.com/december12/ to get 50% off select digital subscriptions (ends Dec 20). Magazines with the additional discount will have a note in red (see an example here).

Better Homes & Gardens has also put out some fantastic special holiday issues at 30% off: Food Gifts, Party Food, and even an entire issue devoted to Christmas Cookies. You can find them at http://www.zinio.com/holiday2012

Did you know? On Zinio you can browse and purchase subscriptions or single issues instantly from your computer or mobile device to read wherever and whenever you like. The Explore section lets you read--even without a subscription--thousands of articles from your favorite magazines and share them with friends.

Thanks again to Zinio for sponsoring this post, and for giving away some freebie subscriptions!

(If you are not in the United States I recommend going to the site first--see if you are able to view magazines and articles. Some countries have more restrictive digital copyright rules, so check to see if the service is available to you before entering the contest. You can view their Terms of Service here.)

  1. I don't have a lot of magazines, but I'd love to get some knitting ones!

    1. I like their selection, too! They have some of the newer ones like Jane Austen and knit.wear.

  2. Mine is Martha Stewart Living. I love it so much but I never want to throw them away! Which makes a lot of clutter!!

    1. I am terrible. I have MSL, plus MSL Weddings and MSL Kids. I think I finally gave away my Everyday Food collection... but only because I got the cookbook, haha!

  3. I would love to cut down on clutter. Would be great to switch over to digital versions.

  4. gosh probably interweave knits even though i stopped my subscription like two years ago. i want to convert to all digital.

  5. I don't have many magazines, except for some leftovers from a friend. But a digital subscription to KnitScene sounds awesome - I can load the patterns on an e-reader and take them with me!
