    Has anyone bought the issues of Mother Earth News 1970-1980 on CD?
    How do you like it?
    Also, there is the CD with 1980 to 1990 and articles from the issues of Mother Earth News.
    I'm thinking of getting these. The cost is $19.95 each. That's only about $40 for 20 years worht of issues. I think there could be some good reference there, espcially the earlier CD's.

    I've got both CD's. I think it's one of the best bargains around. I subscribed to MEN back in those days and still have some of the issues, but because of that I pretty much knew what I was getting. The two CD's cover the years when MEN was worth having. (For my money it hasn't been any good for several years.)

    You'll find a little of the material dated, but not much. Funniest thing in reading those old articles is when they mention what some article cost. Wish we could see some of those prices again!

    Now, when I run across the box or two that has old MEN printed issues, I can give them to some deserving soul.
