Various US and international newspapers and magazines can also be purchased. Examples include The New York Times ($US13.00 per month) and Time ($US1.49 per month).
Audio titles from Audible.com can be purchased on a PC and then transferred to a Kindle for mobile listening, as can personal documents and various public domain electronic texts.
