Magazines are great. There are at least a dozen about every subject known to man. They're great to read casually, to clip stories and ideas from or to save and catalog like books. The only problem with that last one is storage. It's never a good look to have piles of magazines stacked around your space. We've managed to make storing music and documents in your home a thing of the past with digital innovations. Now there's a site that lets you read, buy, subscribe to and store magazines online. Meet Coverleaf.com...
On Monday, Texterity announced its new digital-magazine service, which allows you to access print magazines online at Coverleaf.com.
On the Web site, you can browse through categories of magazines, pick one off of the digital shelf, preview it for free, or pay to instantly see its entire contents. The magazines' digital layouts look very much like the print originals. You then can subscribe to either a print or digital version of a magazine, or even buy a single copy of any issue digitally (or you can have it mailed to you the traditional way).
Coverleaf is a great—and seemingly overdue—idea that offers avid magazine readers a Web-based place where they can read and manage their subscriptions conveniently without a huge bookshelf or lots of storage space.
