    Do you current have any book subscriptions? If so what kind of subscriptions do you get? Are they worth it?

    I used to subscribe to Wattpad Premium (about USD$6) so I can read fanfics and original works by all authors without ad interruption or "hidden premium content that will only be released a few days later for normal free users" but I realised it's quite hard to unsubscribe. You can't do it via their app or website, you'll have to go back to your Apple/Google Play account which sometimes doesn't go through for I don't know what reason. I think they introduced a second premium plan, which is about USD$8 per month where you can unlock 2 paid stories from books that authors can sell on the platform, but hmm I don't know how to feel about this. As long as Wattpad authors are getting paid properly on the platform by the company, as long as it's good work ethic between them, it's good to support but I rather read online from my local library or other free websites with thousands of PDFs to scroll through.

    I'm considering a Kindle but I don't know whether it's worth it, or should I just get a smaller iPad or tablet to bring around to read various documents/books/magazines. I love reading paperbacks, but sometimes it's a hassle to bring around a 300pg book hahah. Still looking through my options, as much as I can read on my phone, sometimes it takes up quite a bit of space if they don't save to the cloud storage or something...

    Are you only looking at book subscriptions or online publication subscriptions too? @Shannon;

    Oooo sometimes it's nice to receive a mystery book but I tend to choose my books, I can't leave my book fate at the hands of others hahah. Is it worth it for yours? Opening something mailed is definitely fun, all the ones I had in the past are all magazine subscriptions, not tabloid kinds but more to folk, photography, food & lifestyle.
