If you guys don't mind I was wondering why CR is no longer being stocked in WH Smith. Purely a matter of curiosity.
Great magazine! I will definitely buy this issue. BTW it's shame some WHSmith stores no longer support you
Hello, I´ve just discovered the magazine and I´d like to know if it´s there any possibility of buy a digital version.
Thanks very much,
