Answer

Yes, we have noticed some of our eNewspapers work better than others on Kindle devices. Here's what you need to know about the various titles.

Wall Street Journal - this is a text-based newspaper, so it should not have any problems being read on your Kindle.

Kansas City Star (Image Edition) - this uses a plugin to display the images, which is not supported by mobile browsers. This version is best read on a computer.

*As an Alternative, try using our Kansas City and Regional Newspapers resource instead, and select Kansas City Star, The (MO) as the publication (there’s a shortcut on the left). This will be a text only based version that can be read on your Kindle.

 New York Times -  Log in through our website to get a daily pass, and continue to the mobile-friendly site (mobile.nytimes.com) to log in with a personal NYTimes account.

*Alternatively, there is a NYTimes app in the Amazon store. To use it in conjunction with the Library’s subscription, first get the daily pass through our website, then open app and login with a personal NYTimes account. 

*NYTimes has a few Kindle FAQs that may help.
