Anonymity concern

Post by Mike O »

I have thought a lot about subscribing to the Grapevine but I'm concerned about anonymity. Is the magazine visible when shipped or is it well wrapped?

hi Mike,
the GV is very well wrapped in very dark plastic, you can't see thru it even when the magazine is out, and you hold it up to the light, you still can't see thru it.
here is what the return addy says:

Grapevine
PO BOX 16867
North Hollywood CA


hope this helps
Jack

Maybe this will be good for a chuckle, Mike ...

When I first tried to subscribe to the Grapevine many years ago, I sent a money order but had wanted to be so "anonymous" that I did not include my surname and "Joe O." and a P.O. Box address apparently did not satisfy the mailroom there!

They still owe me 12 bucks ...

Good question Mike. I was thinking the same thing about the Grapevine in print. "What if someone see it?!?!?"

That's hilarious Lee :lol: !

And of course you can always order the online version :-) it's cheaper as well! Or the digital version which gives a few more options for a little extra.

But having it in hand, being able to share it in a meeting, even passing off the collected mags to a friend in Kenya, all these things make the print version very satisfying indeed .. .

What is the difference between the digital version and the online version?

So is the "online" verion is the same as the "digital" version except it includes the audio and the archive of old editions?

How is the "print version, digitally" delivered? Is it a PDF?

Thanks,
Rusty

Awesome, thank you. I will most certainly check out the free trial. I haven't looked into it very much as I am still reading the Big Book in my spare time.

Thanks,
Rusty
