‘We Don’t Like the Changes’
I’m very disappointed with Yankee‘s changes. I preferred the smaller format, which was easier to slip into my purse and take anywhere with me. Please remember the old saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Since you’ve taken a national treasure away,
I know just what I’ll do …
When my subscription has ended,
I will not renew!

I’ve lived in New Hampshire most of my life, and Yankee has been a part of my life for ages. What happened to all the great articles and helpful hints? The whole magazine seems to be directed toward the rich and famous. The large majority of people in New England are just plain folks, and they have some fascinating stories to tell. A bigger magazine isn’t going to make me buy it, but some interesting articles will.

I just received the new January/February issue and turned to the last page, as I do every month, to read Mary’s Farm. It’s gone! How could you move it to the front? Edie Clark’s musings seem so out of place there. Her observations often made me smile as I pondered her simply written essays. You’ve ruined my monthly ritual of reading Yankee last page first!

‘Thanks for the New Yankee’
I love the new format of the first issue of 2007! I sat tonight and read it cover to cover. It was such a pleasure to be able to read an entire article on one page — or at least consecutive pages. It was almost like curling up with a favorite book. The hardest part now will be waiting two months for the next issue!

I’m a Yankee subscriber, and I also work for the United States Postal Service. I find the magazine’s new size easier to deliver. The old format was a little bigger than letter size but too small to be a flat. It kind of sat somewhere in between. Two thumbs up!
