    Lots of companies are out there, building e-edition packages for newspapers. We had to approach it with a lot of questions, would it be easy to use, would it work with our workflow and would it have room to expand with future technology and etc. With the upcoming market of e-readers and more powerful mobile devices, it was just the right time when things came together. We talked with other newspapers, looked at numerous demos and compared a lot of data. Our partnership with Tecnavia just fit.

    You say: “Compared to other newspapers in the area offering an e-edition, the cost is competitive. The Columbus Dispatch charges $7.95 per month for its electronic version.” The Mount Vernon News is $7.00 per month.
    And the Columbus Dispatch has how many pages compared to the Mount Vernon News??
    Regardless of the price, it is still very nice to be able to read my home town newspaper in Bangkok the same day that it is published.
    Thanks but what took so long to do this?

    Yes, there are instructions on how to add it to your Kindle in the help menu of the e-edition.
