Foreign Language Newspapers on the Amazon Kindle

While I admit, the Kindle is not the cure all for the newspaper business, it does provide an alternative and viable way to read a newspaper. The Amazon Kindle currently offers subscriptions for 37 newspapers around the world. Most being from the larger cities in the United States, however some come from Nations and Cities abroad.
