How Do You Feel About the Smaller Rolling Stone?

On one hand, it feels like the end of an era now that Rolling Stone magazine is shrinking from its oversize format down to a "regular"-sized magazine, starting with the Oct. 30 issue. On the other hand, a smaller mag is easier to carry around and might be easier to read in general.

How do you feel about the shrinking of Rolling Stone?

Unfazed, but RS did stand out among others being a larger sized mag.

I actually like the smaller size - allowing for higher quality paper *sort of* makes up for the lack of big photos.

I like the smaller magazines, especially for traveling. I usually pick up the UK version of Glamour, because it's "purse-size". I do agree that the bigger size is nice for photos. Shame to loose that aspect, since RS produces some awesome photo shoots.

It seems like the end of an era and that larger size was cumbersome.But then, I haven't read this magazine in years, also, unfazed.

I boycott Rolling Stone Mag because of how unfair they've always been to Queen. So underated while they praise crap like Zac Efron and company.

Rolling Stone lost it's soul years and years ago.

well i think that there was something special about the book being larger, but i think that if they are using a better paper stock by going smaller, then it's really a win win.

I always read the mag at my cousins and never found the size to be bothersome or harder to read--I would just fold it in half--no probs! and i always knew what magazine it was from the back or any angle because it was so unique, i was actually just reading it tonight when i was there--so sad that its changing!

I'm mostly glad it's being shrunk cause it was a little hard to manage. But also a little sad cause those big pages were great for collaging with! Oops, my artist is showing. :P

Good! I found it a bit cumbersome. That's one of the reasons I stopped subscribing to it in the 90's.

I love Rolling Stone, and I think this is weird! It's not that big of a deal, but I liked the bigger pages, especially when they had good photography.

I never read this magazine on a regular basis, but I like the movie reviews by Peter Travers.

RS is very entertaining, so I didn't mind the size of the mag.
