AAA Living Digital Edition, March / April 2011 - Michigan -- Pace Communications / AAA Living, Greensboro, NC ... "The striking thing about this electronic magazine is the complete extent to which the editorial and production staff have fully utilized the electronic medium. Every article has links. Almost every article is interactive in some way (or multiple ways). Imbedded videos are common, both in the editorial well and the space ads. And, through all this, very appealing spreads -- with attractive typography, photos and illustration -- showcase interesting, concisely written travel features. An A+."
