I'm one among the people who read the last page of the newspaper first. Then I read the first page and go on to the second. I know few of my friends who read the sports page first. How about you? Which page of the newspaper do you read first?

I use to read the first page as most people do.I focus on the headlines first and go through the entire paper all headings and read the news in detail if it interests me.Then in the evening,i read completely all the news.I am not much interested with sports column like you.Cheers!

oh..so you glance through the newspaper twice a day..I never spend that much time for that..I just read through the complete portion of interesting news at the same time.

me and my husband share the newspaper in the morning so I don't have any particular page to start with. It would be anything on the top of the various newspaper sections that my husband did not pick out first. But most of the time, my husband would get the sports section. So I'd be picking up the thickest section which is the headlines and news.

that is fine..this is common when you share the newspaper with someone at the same time. I have seen this with my parents..They share the papers and read news in turns..

Hi smilyn! I read the front page first. The most important news are more often than not found on the front page. Then, I would go over very important articles. After reading front page stories, I would read the business section of the newspaper. That portion is important for me because I use it to enhance my lectures. The last few pages I would go over are the sports and entertainment sections.

I usually read the local section first. I try to find out if anything has happened in the area that I live that I didn't know about. I also like to read the obituaries...my husband says that I am weird for doing this, but I have actually found people that I knew had passed by reading the obits.

I go straight for the crossword page straight away! I love doing the two crosswords in our daily paper as well as the suduko puzzle. I feel a sense of achievement when I have completed both of them on my own and the suduko too. I do it every day and it's a great way of passing the time away when the commercials come on during my favourite programme.

I usually start with the first page, and go through the whole newspaper, I read just about every bit of it, except the sports section, I skip over that, I'm not into sports much, then I make sure I read all the classifieds, to see if there's anything interesting that I might need to buy..lol.

I used to do the same. The last 3 or 4 pages are generally related to sports. So I used to first check Cricket or Football news. Then later my craze towards sports declined and I started reading the main news which appears on the front page first. The second page consists of readers comments etc. So I tend to ignore it and move to the 3rd page which has more news. Then from 3rd page to the end.

When it comes to newspapers or magazines I always tend to look at the last page first and then I go for the cross words page, quizzes and so on, and then Im ready to read the paper. I have always wonder about why do I look at the last page first?. Any normal person would start at the begining! don't you think?. Why in the world would anyone want to see the end before the begining! just imagine living life like that! maybe that is why I have made so many mistakes?

I, too, read the newspaper from the back to the front, and I read the comics from the bottom to the top.

I watch and read the first page for sure and then go straight to the sports page and thereafter to the editorial page and then come other pages as I can leaf through them.
