International Higher Education Consulting Blog (Kindle Edition)

International Higher Education Consulting Blog
Yes, you can now get IHEC Blog on the Kindle! I want to thank Penny Schouten (@PennySchouten) for suggesting this a few months ago. I finally found a few minutes this past week to investigate and that’s all that it really took to make it happen.

The main concern I have is that Amazon charges a monthly subscription fee. My intent with making IHEC Blog available on the Kindle was accessibility for readers and not pennies in my pocket. Additionally, Amazon set the monthly subscription fee at $1.99 while some blogs are available on the Kindle for only $0.99 a month and I’m not sure why. I would prefer the IHEC Blog Kindle Edition to be free. If you do subscribe I would love to hear what you think and if you could take a moment to provide a customer review I would appreciate it.  If you are interested in subscribing to IHEC Blog's Kindle Edition plesase click on the photo above and you will be directed to

With a monthly subscription I’m not sure how many people will subscribe. Again, I didn’t do this to make money and any revenue generated by Kindle subscriptions I will donate to UNICEF. Even if you don’t have a Kindle or don’t want to subscribe to IHEC Blog please consider making a cash donation to UNICEF!

I have something else in the works for the mobile user and it will be free (assuming I read all the fine print correctly) so stay tuned…


  1. That's great, and good for you for donating to UNICEF. I'll subscribe today.


  2. Many thanks Jeramy for subscribing to IHEC Blog (The Kindle Edition)! Much appreciated. I think UNICEF is a great place to donate!

  3. One of the blogs I follow is is also on Kindle and you can subscribe here

  4. Great news! IHEC Blog's Kindle edition is now $0.99 per month. I don't know why Amazon reduced the price from $1.99 a month but this is great. Now if it can only be free like many iPhone applications (perhaps in time?)! In the mean time, if you do decide to subscribe and pay the monthly fee I thank you in advance and want to remind you that all proceeds will be donated to UNICEF.

  5. Congratulations, David!! I just found out via Google Alert. I'm subscribing as I type this. I don't always get to check my Google Reader, but I am on Kindle at least once a day!


  6. @Penny ~ Many thanks for your comment and for subscribing to IHEC Blog on Kindle. Much appreciated! Also, many thanks for putting this option on my radar in the first place. If you have time to post a customer review on Amazon that would be great! Thanks again, David
