Not sure if reading a magazine on your phone or tablet works for you? Well, in honor of Google's Play Newsstand launch on Android, the search giant is offering more than 60 free or discounted magazines for you to try out.

Play Newsstand is actually a combination of Google Currents and Play Magazines. Having two separate app identities didn't make much sense, so it's nice to see Google wrap them together so quickly in comparison to its other services. That's right, I'm looking at you, Google Voice and Google Talk/Messenger/Hangouts.

Ready to check out the selection? The quickest way to scope out your choices is to visit this link.

However, if you forget to bookmark the link or want to look on your device later, you can access the sale one of two ways:

Open the Newsstand app and then go to My Magazines. You should see a shop button -- tap it. Once the Play Store loads, just look for the title "Free & Discounted Issues."

Open Google Play on your Android device, then tap on Newsstand. Scroll down to find "Free & Discounted Issues" to browse the sale.
