Today morning this question came to my mind that i always read paper back to front. I will read the last page and to the first however i am not a sports person. I do like to know but not crazy for it. I am not Muslim still i read it like that. One of my friend reads normally front to back. He always says that i should learn to read it normally. I have tried but next day same thing happens last to first. So how do you read the newspaper and why? is there a specific reason?

I am not a creature of habit, so I do not read it the same way each time. Sometimes I read front to back, sometimes back to front, and sometimes I start in the middle.

Normally people start from the front page to the last and I too do like that.As you have stated that you are not interested in sports section,then what you are doing is abnormal.But that is not a sin or crime.By the way,when you are reading a story book,do you start reading from the last page?

Hi Srganesh, I don't like to read a story book ever study books, the reason is i dont understand them as i start from last chapter. And i read the suspense first.

Of course, I'll choose the page I intersted in first, and then the first page and some headlines. For me, reading newspaper is a way to have relax and to get useful information, and it becomes a part of my life.

Wow, I have never heard of anyone reading from the back and working their way up. I can not even image it.I never really read the whole paper, I just skim through it and see if anything really catches my eyes, if so I will read that particular article. I always start from the font and work my way back. It just seems like the normal thing to do. Well, each to their own, Happy reading.

I generally skim read the front part of the paper looking for the bits which interest me and read them there and then before hitting the backs pages for the latest sports news. Quite often I will return to the paper later in the day and read a few of the pieces which I didn't fancy the first time round.

I always go through the newspaper front first to last. Quickly I take note of the headlines and editorial. Then I read selectively. The importance of the news decides their turn.

Skim it from the front when I do read the actual news. Which has been getting more and more rare as of late. Still, when I do read the news paper, I start at the front page. That is often the most important of what needs to be read. Sometimes, I just only have time or interest to see the headlines, so that is why it gets read that way for the most part.

he he he... Same with me too.. I dont have any order though but start with the last page. :) Then come to first page then to fourth then to second or something like that. Common yaar.. atleast for reading paper dont apply any rules. We should have our own choice in this. :) Enjoy reading backward bro.

When I take a newspaper, I first browse it, to see if there are some articles I'm really interested in. If there are such present, I read them first and then search for another ones. I don't have any certain scheme how to read a paper.

I usually don't read it in order. Sometimes from the front page, sometimes from middle, but sometimes from back page. more abnormal. However i don't like sport section so that i rarely check it out. Newspaper i regularly read has this section in separated bundle from the main bundle.

I read the newspaper front to back and then to the front again LOL i.e. I read the first page, then I go straight to the back page and then from the inside back page, I start reading forward and end up with the inside front page. So specific reasons…just read the cover pages first that’s all.

I do read the newspaper from back to front at times, because I want to read about the commentaries, feedbacks from readers, and more local news which are at the back. I pay less attention to the front pages as they carry the world news which I more or less know from reading online. Also I read the inserts that provide tips for healthy living, recipies, latest technological gadgets, travel destination recommendation. So in fact I could just read from any portion of the newspaper that caught my attention.

hi there! i usually read the fornt page first. i look for headlines which will interest me. if there is none then i go to the lifestyle section and/or the entertainment section. i usually read articles about beauty, health and food tips, and astrology.i even like reading the comics section. i also enjoy reading gossips about famous stars. LOL! after reading each line from there, i will go to business section, look at the exchange rate and latest in business. im not very particular here, i just read articles i will be interested with. then to sport and lastly, the classified adds. thats it, usually its not in proper order but thats my way of reading the newspaper.

Usually, I start by having a quick flick through and scanning the pages ever so briefly. If I see a news story or article that particularly catches my eye or interest, I will stop and take the time to read it. Afterwards, I will start from the front page again and read anything that I missed from cover to cover

I like to read the newspaper in a good order. I like to read it from the front to the back. As the most important and popular headlines are available in the front. I love China

I usually read the newspaper from back to front. I don't know why I do this. I have observed this in me. I don't read the headlines first but instead, I read the sports first or sometimes the lifestyle section.
