More Information About the Almanac MONTHLY
To answer our most common reader question: the Almanac MONTHLY is NOT a condensed version of The 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac annual publication.
Rather, the MONTHLY is MORE of what our readers love. Get different stories, wit, wisdom, and weather 12 times a year in a digital magazine. Think of it this way:
- The (annual) Old Farmer's Almanac is your long view, your full year planned out.
- This MONTHLY is what's now, what's next. With ALL-NEW content, the MONTHLY is more timely (it's Monthly!) and just as fun, as humorous, and as useful.
