Did you know that you can now get The Old Schoolhouse Magazine in a digital edition?  TOS is my only homeschool magazine subscription.  Time is a precious commodity, and I get the most useful information for my time by reading TOS.

That being said, I am also prone to misplacing my copies.  A TOS digital subscription eliminates that possibility since the issues are as close as the nearest computer.  Instead of downloading a bulky PDF file each month, you flip through a real online magazine.  The option to download is available, however, and includes options for both Mac and PC.

I was quite impressed with the user interface.  For instance, I knew that my friend Jacque Dixon was featured in the Summer edition.  I clicked on the “Search” tab at the top of the screen, typed in “Jacque Dixon,” and was shown each page where her name appeared, taking me straight to the article.

I love the “Pages” view, which displays thumbnails of each two-page spread in the magazine.  Here’s a screen shot:

More useful features include clickable hyperlinks; the ability to print or email articles to share with up to five of your friends; and instant delivery in the same beautiful, high-quality format you’ve come to expect from TOS.

The price is the icing on the cake: at $16.95, a digital subscription is 32% less than the US print subscription price, 43% less than Canadian print subscription prices, and 65% less than international print prices.  If finances have kept you from subscribing in the past, the digital subscription option may be for you.
