People these days are so busy with work and other stuff. I wonder if we have still time to read our daily newspaper. Reading a newspaper doesn't only make you updated with the current events but it also increases your spelling ability and vocabulary.

I think that since the advent of the internet, really, people are reading newspapers less and less. Plus, you can get all of the news you want online. I really have never been much of a newpaper reader or a tv news watcher myself, in any case, but I am learning about more news stories than ever now that I am posting here at Mylot, since a lot of users like to share such stories. This has also gotten me to look up some 'fun' news sites online like Dave's Daily. I enjoy those kinds of news stories the most.. animal news, wacky news, etc.

I wish I could say I read the newspaper daily but I don't. I get most of my information about the world through sites like cnn.com, but I'll be the first to admit I should read the paper waaaaay more often.

I usually read newspaper only after my office hours. I used to read some important headlines and also used to gather some spelling ability and vocabulary.

I never find time to read the newspaper, usually if I want to catch the news I'll just turn the radio on and that way I can still get everything done that I need to do and still find out what is going on in the world. Although most times I will admit, I usually have to hear the news from my friends and then I always wonder why I'm the last to find anything out, lol

I was pretty regular with newspaper reading. But I have been very busy lately, and have a hectic schedule. Newspaers certainly help increase vocabulary.

I read 2 a day- an intellectual 1 and then 1 which features scandals & showbiz. I like to stay up-to-date and believe it improves my college work & genral intelligence & vocabularly. I also buy it for the tv guide & puzzles! Its my way of relaxing at the end of the day.

I read the paper quite a bit. I try to read it every day. But I view it online. there are only certain parts of the paper I like so viewing it online works for me. and I dont have to worry about paper cuts or having to throw the paper away when I am done! lol

Yes!, you are absolutely right my friend. It IS difficult these days, to concentrate on written matter when the world is animated into a movie! News comes handy in all modern gadgets, other than our NEWS Papers. But, i still consider not to just waste away the News paper. Instead, one can pursue reading it when they suffer power cuts/minor problems in other types of media. But, reading a newspaper will definately enhance one`s vocabulary. So, let`s go ahead and win the race! :-)
