frugal find: zinio magazine app

Favorite new frugal find: Zinio. Heard of it? It's a magazine app, but the best thing about it is I can make an account through my library's website and read magazines for FREE.  Only catch - you need a library card and pin number. Not to get on my soap box or anything, but if you don't have a library card-get moving! Free books. Free dvds. Free online tutoring. Free audiobooks and ebooks. Free storytimes. Free interactive children's books. Free games. And now magazines straight to your device from the comfort of your own abode. Country Living. Eating Well. Martha Stewart Living. Newsweek. National Geographic. Consumer Reports. Saveur. Good Housekeeping. ESPN (the hubster fav). Food Network Magazine. And the list continues! There are a few of my favorites missing, but I'm hoping the library will continue to add more magazines to their subscriptions as popularity for the app grows.

Here's the link and how it works:
1) Log in with library card and pin number. 
2) Set up an account.
3) Download app from app store (or you can choose to just read on your computer if you don't have an i-anything)
4) Choose which magazines you wish to read and they will be automatically added to your library.
5) Check back every so often for the newest issues.

Pull up a cozy reading chair, pour some hot tea, and get reading on this rainy Wednesday! (Shameless plug for reading and the library is now over :)
