i am both slow to figure out how to really use my iPad as more than a toy and I am unfortunately old school. I just renewed 3 magazines... Vanity Fair, Martha Stewart Living and Everyday Food.

I have been using Flipboard on my iPad to follow blogs and fabric designers in particular and I have been trying to put all knitting patterns on my iPad.

I resist reading books on my iPad because I really like books. And until I looked at Zinio I hadn't really figured out that I should get my magazines digitally. Duh. I read my magazines and pass them on and sometimes want to refer back to something. They have lots of craft magazines and I can just keep them on my iPad.

I just signed up for their sweepstakes. You can get a $5 credit and a chance to win an iPad Mini. If you are interested check it all out here. http://bit.ly/givealittlegetalot
