Reader’s Digest UK Launches Modern Digital Archive Available for Subscription
Individual and institutional readers can subscribe to a fully-searchable, modern archive of Reader’s Digest UK stretching back to 2012, created in partnership with digital service provider Exact Editions. More than 100 issues, each featuring a compendium of advice, true-life tales and human interest stories that traverse cultures, are seamlessly available across web, iOS and Android devices.
Reader’s Digest was launched in 1922 by young American soldier and copywriter DeWitt Wallace, who decided to create a magazine that was a compilation of all the best articles from other publications. The magazine now reaches a global audience of millions in dozens of worldwide editions. The UK edition first hit the shelves 1938 and includes thoroughly research health features, engaging interviews, exclusive recipes and unique competitions, amongst much more.
Issues in the Reader’s Digest UK digital archive exactly mirror their print counterparts, thereby retaining the magazine’s compelling aesthetic. The Exact Edition platform’s advanced search function extends across the entire modern archive as well as individual issues, allowing complex searches to be carried out at the touch of a button. Issues can also be easily downloaded for offline use through the app.
Individual and institutional subscriptions to Reader’s Digest are available in the Exact Editions shops here:
