The best sites to download magazines and Newspapers in pdf for free
PDF Giant, huge multilingual magazine database
PDF Giant is a multilingual website containing thousands of magazines in PDF format. Among the many versions of the site, there is the English, French and Italian.
Even this site is a candidate in the best palmares because of the huge amount of editorial material to download and is among the most reliable, although the hosting services that is often supported are too restrictive for non-premium users.
Among the magazines you can find there are definitely Penthouse, Wired, Playboy and The Economist: if you are looking for a magazine forbidden to under 18 years or you are interested in staying updated on geopolitical events PDF Giant is the place for you!
Update: to date October 2, 2018, PDF Giant is online. If you notice that the site is no longer reachable let me know through the comments.
Library Genesis is a Russian site whose mission is to get a world where all the multimedia contents are free, without the much-discussed DRM.
Although the site focuses mainly on ebooks, you can find scientific articles, magazines and comics in Italian, English, Spanish and dozens of other languages.
eMagazinePDF is an international website that gives great visibility to international newspapers and magazines. At the top of the site, there is a bar containing the letters of the alphabet: passing over the mouse the categories that start with a given letter are displayed. Other really useful features are the Trending section at the top right, the search bar on the right sidebar and the ability to easily filter by month.
Noteworthy is the design, which gives a modern touch to this portal. The high-definition previews of Wired, the New York Times and The Washington Post, just to give some examples, allow you to immediately see the first page or cover, which is undoubtedly very appreciated.
AvaxHome is a great and famous magazine collector, free newspapers and more.
You can find, in addition to your favorite magazines, even newspapers, ebooks, songs, movies and software of all kinds, just to mention the most famous categories.
The site, because of the huge amount of content protected by copyright, often is obscured by law enforcement.
In this case, following our guide on how to change DNS, access to the site will be possible again.
Given the closures and re-openings more and more frequent, we decided to use as a link to AvaxHome the one to the list of the Mirror. In this way, you will always know, even after months, which are the updated addresses of this famous portal!
What is missing at this site? In my opinion, if there were a list of international newspapers just a click away, it would be perfect!
Update: as we have been rightly reported by a source, to be able to use Avaxhome you must be registered and have a subscription with the IcerBox file sharing service.
