eNCR and Kindle editions of the National Catholic Reporter

NCR content is available in two E-reader formats: eNCR, which is a full color digital replica of the print edition that we publish and mail every other week, and the Kindle edition, which is available through Amazon.com.  

The eNCR edition enables readers to change the size of the font, to share articles via email, to print them and to access back issues (readers tell us they appreciate a tidier alternative to stacks of old NCR paper copies). eNCR costs $52.95 for 26 issues over the course of a year. You can read eNCR on your desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet like an iPad or your smartphone. An NCR print subscription, which also costs $52.95, includes access to eNCR for no extra charge. 

The Kindle edition does not replicate the print edition but organizes its stories into such categories as Front Page, News, Ministry & Mission, Opinion, etc. Photos and text appear in black and white, and the font can be adjusted, as with eNCR. You can also store back issues on your Kindle.

Amazon sells, delivers and handles subscriptions to the Kindle edition, which costs $2.99 a month.  A free two-week trial is available. Your NCR subscription will automatically continue at the end of the trial period at the regular subscription price. Payment is billed automatically to your credit card.

Both eNCR and the Kindle edition are available on your devices every other Friday.
