Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) November 29, 2013
Al-Anon’s monthly magazine, "The Forum," will be available in early December on the Web from Nook, the Barnes & Noble electronic book store. The magazine, published in hard-copy since 1954, is for anyone who has been affected by someone else’s alcoholism. The cost of an annual electronic subscription is $11. Individual electronic copies are available for $1.49.
"The Forum" magazine features stories of recovery from Al-Anon members who have lived with the disease of alcoholism in a friend or family member. The magazine provides hope, help, and comfort to anyone who may be dealing with alcoholism in a loved one. It complements the support one can find by attending local Al-Anon meetings.
Subscribers will be able to read the electronic version of "The Forum" on Nook hardware readers. With a free Nook app, the magazine will also be accessible on iPads, iPhones, iPod touch handhelds, Android phones (version 2.1 and later), Android tablets, Windows PCs, Mac, and via Web browsers. Although Al-Anon does not endorse Nook or any outside enterprise, at this time, the electronic version of the magazine will only be available from Nook. Al-Anon may offer the electronic version of "The Forum" through other e-book vendors at a later date.
"The Forum" is also available in hard copy, direct from Al-Anon’s online store.
