For the environmentally-conscious reader, Digital-magazine store Zinio is currently offering free subscriptions to select publications as part of its “Read Green Initiative.”

free magazines

There are several magazines to choose from in many categories. The sign up process is very simple: just select your magazine and provide an email address, then sign up for a Zinio account (if you do not already have one) with that same address.

Once you’re logged in to Zinio, your library should have your new magazine available to read. You can read it in your Flash-enabled browser or download the magazine to read offline using the free Zinio Reader (Win/Mac). I recommend downloading the reader so as not to tax the browser’s resources; The image quality is better as well.

    with this way people (including me) will be more interested on the free magazines than green issues. :P

    The linked word zinio takes you to zinio.com rather than goreadgreen.com

    If that's the intended link, where on the zinio page do you find the Read Green magazine selection? It doesn't appear to be there.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see anything in this post about where to go to find the Read Green list. I googled it, and found goreadgreen.com that looks like the images posted above, so I'm guessing that's it, but was it mentioned in the post and I'm just not seeing it?

    Funny you bring up PC Magazine as your example. They just announced their last issue will be in January 2009.

    I used to work for a company that sold paper machine parts to paper mills. We used to joke about how we should all subscribe to all the free printed magazines we could find to help prop up our job security in that industry. I am sure those conversations still go on in that industry.
