We used to get the Sunday local newspaper delivered for the past few years. Now we have stopped getting it to help cut down on extra expenses. I do miss it at times, especially for the ads and the coupons. Do you read the newspaper and if so is it everyday or just Sunday?

I do not read newspapers at all, not in the morning, noon or night. I hate touching newspapers, especially when the ink smear on my fingers. I prefer to get my news online, and to be honest, I'm not really big in the up-to-date with the world thing. The only time I'll probably pick up a newspapers is if I'm stuck somewhere and the only reading material is a newspaper.

I think more people are also going online to get their news. It's more up to date that way.

I don't read the newspaper everyday, but I do try to read it at least two or three times a week. I generally just look through it and read the articles that catch my eye and look interesting.

I used to buy a cup of coffee and a newspaper every morning until I recently realise how much money I was throwing away during the course of a month. so I have a jar of coffee at work and but the newspaper on Sundays. I love to read the sunday newspaper in bed on a Sunday afternoon and then take a little nap! The rest of the week I try to catch the local news and sometimes read the newspaper online.

Isn't it lovely, to relax with a coffee and read the Sunday papers whilst in bed? I know what you mean though, when my children were younger I rarely got the time to read the papers. You will have to give yorself an hours time out to enjoy reading. May I wish for you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Newspapers and the internet both have advantages and disadvantages. The internet can be both reliable and unreliable, but at least it lets you choose multiple sources, rather than just one like a newspaper. It's also very quick. Newspapers are good as well - you don't need to be in front of a computer to read one, and they cover pretty much everything in one go. I say, for best results, why not read both!?

I really like the newspaper, but my mom won't get it anymore. I'm in the newspaper a lot, too, and I never get to keep a copy of it, because my mom won't get one! It's quite annoying!

The only time I read the newspaper every day was when I was in high school and it was part of school project. Other than that, I worked at the newspaper for a few years and it was delivered to my desk and house for free. I usually read it at work when I had time, but never at home. I don't have time to sit and read the paper much any more. I will go online and read the internet version when I have time.
