One of the things I miss most here is not being able to read magazines. So I was excited when Cheryl gave me a great tip about how libraries are now lending out magazines on-line (using a service called Zino). The magazines can then be downloaded onto a Kindle or ipad and you can keep them forever, plus often download back issues too. So it’s worth checking to see if the library in your hometown has Zino – for example Edinburgh and London in the UK, Denver and Boston in the US and Toronto in Canada all offer them. Or you can pester your relatives & relatives to lend you their library cards 🙂 And of course most libraries offer e-books which is a great way to stock up on English titles.
