More Kindle newspapers added, bringing the total to 18 newspapers

There hasn’t been much news regarding newspapers on Kindle, but Amazon has been silently adding more newspapers since the last time we covered newspapers on BlogKindle.com.

In February there were 14 newspapers available to download onto the Kindle, they were:

  1. The New York Times
  2. The Wall Street Journal
  3. The Washington Post
  4. Investor’s Business Daily
  5. The Boston Globe
  6. San Francisco Chronicle
  7. San Jose Mercury News
  8. The Seattle Times
  9. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  10. Le Monde
  11. The Irish Times
  12. Frankfurter Allgemeine
  13. Les Echos
  14. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Since then, Amazon has added a further 5 newspaper titles:

  1. Shanghai Daily – $5.99/month
  2. The Independent – $14.99/month
  3. Le Monde – $14.99/month
  4. The Denver Post – $5.99/month
  5. Austin American-Statesman – $5.99/month

There are 2 US based newspapers, and 3 international newspapers – all of them come with the standard 14-day free trial. Shanghai Daily at $5.99/month is a bargain and might be the one that is most worth checking out, however the other 2 international papers are very expensively priced at $14.99/month. My wish of having the Financial Times hasn’t come into fruition just yet, I have no doubt that one day it will be available on the Kindle – just not any-time soon.

Click on the title or image to visit the product page for each newspaper, you can sign up for the 14-day free trial from there.

    Are ads displayed on the Kindle?

    Since newspapers are supported by ads how is this going to work? For a while it will work without ads, but at some point the electronic version is going to have to generate revenue for the papers
