Cool find.

You don't need to put in email address just the barcode and go.

I think this is less of a Bargain alert and more of a bug.

This works really well in a tablet without an app!
If I could like your post twice OP I would.

Anyone know how you can register an account using this sort of login, just so we could keep access when this bug is inevitably fixed?

There are loads of magazines there too btw if you search or look through the listings by country.

Get a library card! That's what's meant to be used.
