I just discovered on Controlled Greed that Barron’s Online is free this week. My subscription to the paper version of Barron’s is about to expire, so this is perfect timing for me. Actually, I’m kind of surprised that I received a Barron’s on my doorstep today.
I like the online version because you can search through all the back issues. I plan on switching over to the online version in the future. It will cut down on the paper clutter in my house and I’ll be able to take it with me on my PocketPC if I save the pages as Word documents from Internet Explorer.
I have been reducing the number of paid subscription I get since I haven’t been able to keep up with all of my reading. I discovered that I haven’t been reading enough annual reports since I’ve been bogged down on my subscriptions. However, Barron’s comes only once a week and many of the articles are of high value so I plan on keeping a Barron’s subscription. Enjoy the free week, you might learn something valuable.
