Your holiday essentials reading list on Readly

Summer is coming. If you're lucky, you might even get to go on a holiday before then. Make the most of it with Readly

While it is easy to remember flip flops, sunglasses and even the sunscreen, you don’t want to trip up on the reading. If you’re planning to sit by a pool all week, or travel for hours, a single book isn’t going to cut it.

That’s where Readly comes in. Readly is an easy-to-use app that lets you get unlimited access to some 4,000 national and international magazines. You can get the full lowdown here, but the key thing to remember is that it’s easier to take your tablet or phone on holiday with you then a stack of magazines to flick through.

But what will you read?

Readly has a strong selection of euro-centric magazines, meaning whatever you want to read, it’s probably included. Why not take a look at the full selection here? Read on, and we’ll pull out a few ideas to keep you entertained.

Titles like Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness could help you plan out your post-holiday recovery plan, and Readly’s ability to let you bookmark important pages means you can pick out the exercises and recipes you’ll be subjecting yourself to on your return, and then promptly forget about it until later.

If you’re the type of person who can’t switch off, titles like Newsweek or Moneyweek can help you keep up with the goings on around the world. Titles like Wired or GQ could let you read up on the latest tech, if you’ve fallen a bit behind. There’s even a decent selection of back issues, meaning you can fill in the gaps if real life has taken its toll on your attention span.

Readly’s content isn’t geolocked: if you need to download a few more magazines, just connect to WiFi and download some more. A wealth of manual magazines, from The Complete Samsung Galaxy Manual all the way to The Nikon Camera Book. This means that if you’ve got problems with your tech, there are complete magazines explaining every detail of tech like the Apple iPhone, Windows 10 or even teaching you some of the finer points of things like Instagram, Adobe’s Photoshop or perhaps crochet.

Of course, if you’re lounging around on holiday, you can always swing for something more unusual. Fortean Times, and the wealth of back issues, could let you experience some of the weird and wonderful, while a collection of All About History magazines could let you read about everything from the American Prohibition to Victorian Britain.

With some 4,000 magazines to choose from, and thousands of great articles hidden away in their pages, why wait?
