    Awesome! Any easy way to browse these on iPad? the missus would love to have all those food magazines. Actually I would love not to have hundreds of physical magazines hoarded.

      PressReader app does the trick. Join your local libray and get free access. A few other apps get the same magazines and others. Check out your libraries web page for details of what else can be had .

    This is awesome thanks a lot. My subscription to Love Patchwork & Quilting was coming up for renewal, so this will save me a bit of money.

      Easy. Disable Javacript on their website and read away.

    Australian newspapers are limited in number due to News Corp <— that's a good thing

    nice, but how to view the magazine pages in full screen?? the interface is not great.

    Thanks! Works great - note to other "newbies" and technically challenged - add the 8 numbers (or library card #) in Barcode.

    Can this only be accessed by PC browsers? I'm on my phone and all that seems to be available are newspaper publications.
    I'm interested in accessing full magazines eg. National geographic, cosmos.

  •  

    Pretty good.
    The website seems confusing for a first time user

  •  

    How do I get access? Do I need to sign up first? Thanks

    As mentioned above, disabling javascript works on some paywalled sites. I have a simple Firefox plugin called YesScript that lets me Blacklist javascript on a site with a simple button click. Enabling Private Browsing works for some sites (File> New private Window in FireFox). Setting the User Agent to GoogleBot works for some sites (User Agent Switcher extension in FireFox does this).

    The best all in one solution is the FireFox anti-paywall extension here: https://github.com/nextgens/anti-paywall/releases

    Call me an idiot, but I really cannot figure it out to use the website with PressReader. Do I download the PressReader as an app on my phone, then login with my library details? My library is Ringwood Vic.

    So I think I worked this out.

    Download pressreader on iPad (or whatever).

    Then go to login, and select “library” below when you put your details in.

    When it asks for your library, type in Warwickshire, and pick that one (was the second of two options for me).

    Then put in any of the afformentioned barcodes, and voila!

  •  

    I am having an issue with the magazines. Example, I choose APC then get the front cover I try the next page arrow or even on of the page thumbnails and it just brings me back to the PressReader homepage. I am using Firefox 66.0.5 64bit and have enabled Flash for the site and have diabled ABP. Anyone else having this issue?

  •  

    Thanks so much OP. I didn't know this existed.

    My local library isn't listed, and all Australian libraries I tried wanted a barcode and pin and mine didn't work, so I copied ptrg above and used Warwickshire. Your 4 listed barcodes are all "in use", but a little playing found one that wasn't.

    My worry is - what about the poor subscriber whose number I have used. If they subsequently try to use their perfectly legal library number, what happens ??? doesn anybody know ???

    Where can you get The Herald Sun Vic?

    Anyone else having problems viewing this website in Chrome? Comes up as a blank page for me. Works perfectly in IE. Not sure why?

    Thanks for a great link nocure. @menace208- I'm on chrome, no problems here. I'm using the 41111111 barcode only, no email address or password, going straight thru'.

    Please consider using your own personal library card number when using this. It's free to get one via your local library (most) and only takes a few mins - for many you can do it online. In this way libraries (and in turn this service) continue to get funding to run as they see the user numbers. Otherwise councils look at the reduced number of users (don't realise people are using fake/published numbers for services like this) and cut the budget to them and we all suffer in due course.

    Is it just me or are Australian main newspapers now not available through Pressreader using a VPN ?
