Did you know digital magazines are available through the NH Downloadable Books  web site? There are 40 titles including Food Network Magazine, Car & Driver, Cooks Illustrated, Country Living, Organic Life, Vanity Fair, Martha Stewart Living, Newsweek, Popular Science, Runner's World, and Wired. Follow this link for instructions on how to use it. Once you download a magazine you will see every page in full color; it's just like flipping through the actual magazine! I just downloaded the latest issues of Cook's Illustrated and Budget Travel and I can't wait to read them.
