You Asked For ‘em. You Got ‘em: Coming in January, 100+ New Titles for Flipster

Coming in January, Harris County Public Library will add over one hundred new titles to our popular Flipster digital magazine service. There will be something to pique everyone's interest. For businesspeople and investors, there will be: Forbes, Fortune, Business Week; for the outdoorsy type: Backpacker, Field & Stream, and Four Wheeler; for the health-conscious: Muscle & Fitness, Runner's World and Men's/Women's Health;  for fashionistas: Allure, Cosmopolitan and InStyle; for gearheads: Car & Driver, Road & Track and Hot Rod; for kids: Nickelodeon, Highlights and Zoobooks. You get the picture, there will be something new and exciting for everyone from crafters to savvy consumers, from budding pundits to DIYers!

If you are not yet familiar with Flipster, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. You can download digital editions of the latest issues of your favorite magazines right to your iPad, Android device, Kindle Fire or computer. These are not pared-down, "lite" versions; they are identical to the newsstand editions from layout to advertisements, and better yet, they are searchable. You can keyword search within single issues as well as across back issues using the content gallery search.

Best of all, there are none of those pesky subscription offer inserts to slip out of the pages and slide under the sofa!

you should tell people you

you should tell people you only get the magazines for 2 days. I think that's very important information. You should also mention you have to get a code from the librarian to be able to begin using it.
