Digital version VERY disappointing.
Looking for convenience in an old favorite? You may be disappointed as I was. The conversion from print to digital (Kindle Fire HD) was very poorly done and hardly handy.
Just a few of my letdowns - The page numbers on the page icons at the bottom of the page are not even close to being the same as the PRINTED version. - The recipes are not interactive. You cannot click on them to have a larger, clearer version of the recipe displayed. - Spelling is horrific. - Words run together. In the reading page view, the spacing between words varies wildly in the designer's attempt to justify both sides of a paragraph. - On the cover or in Content page do not expect to click on a page number and be taken there. That kind of technology is not included in this digital version.
Stick with the paper version, if at all. At least there, you can clip recipes and put post-a-notes on pages to direct yourself to favorites. You can bookmark pages in the digital version, but that's about it.

Really am sad I ever subscribed to receive this magazine
Really am sad I ever subscribed to receive this magazine. I was hoping that since the title was "family circle" it would be a good, clean family friendly mag. But this is just contains a bunch of a namby pamby articles that are not helpful or insightful. I simple flip through this and off to the recycling bin it goes. The ONLY article that I have actually found interesting and instructive was the current one which spoke on securing your computer/electronics and explained what type of products to get to secure your info. The fashion section is ok as is the interior decorating section but not going to ever purchase this just for those couple of pages.

Not the Same
I used to read this magazine every month however it seems to have changed its focus and now there is not much in it that is of interest to me. I will NOT renew when this offer is over.

Downsizing amount of pages
Just received my Jan. issue in the same wrapping as my Better Homes and Gardens. Lot less pages in Family Circle. The two together make up what seems like it use to be one magazine. Won't be renewing.

TO THIN FOR ME!!
The issues have seriously become very THIN. The subject matter must be slim pickens at Family Circle. Disappointed with the beginning of my subscription. I've purchased this magazine for years and never encountered such a thin issue. Will not be renewing.

Worth the time...
Informative and fun. More current and hip than it used to be, in a good way.

Always a pleasure!
I so often pick this magazine up on line at the supermarket. It's filled with actually USEFUL information for real people living real lives. I've never found an issue to be a dud. Finally, I caved in and subscribed with a great price through BTA-MALL.com. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a fun magazine to flip through. If you're like me, you'll save back issues for some time and share with friends.

Wife's magazine. She seems to enjoy it. When it comes in the mail, she's reading it when she's not busy. So, a simple pleasure she enjoys.
