Free Stuff: Interesting magazine downloads
My friend and an avid visitor of magscene.com often asks for links from where he can download free digital magazines. Prompted by that and my fascination for digital magazines which goes back to 2003 (when I wrote a whitepaper on then-new digital delivery mechanisms), here is a new section that highlights interesting freebies--Free Digital issues, access to closely guarded archives, bargain magazine discounts, etc.
Enjoy this month's selection of free stuff!
