I ordered the Mother Earth News archive on a jump drive for $30+. It's in an EPUB format which means I had to download a program to read books on computer. I was dismayed to find that there is no INDEX to search for information and the articles don't include images. As I age, I find it harder to remember which volume had which article so I'm finding that I wasted my money. My hope was to recycle or give away my back issues, many from the 1970s, but I won't do that now. I might give the jump drive to somebody, though. In fact, it's yours for $20, which will include all shipping. But don't waste your money on it. Yes, the drive does have a little red light that flashes in a cool way. But that's the best thing I can say about it.
I'm in the process of making my own index. Maybe I will post it here!
