I don't have the habit of scanning through the newspaper everyday, but I'd like to scan the latest news through the internet, that's convienient and also saving time. But sometimes, if I have nothing to do, like when I'm on the train, I'd like to scan through the newspaper. Anyhow, reading newspaper is not bad. We should all care about what's happening around us.

Oh my goodness, no i don't! The last time I read a newspaper must have been over two months ago now! I haven't been paying attention to the news much lately...if i happen to be watching tv i might watch it, or if my family tells me something exciting happened i look it up online to see what happened. If somebody brings a newspaper into my house, I read it, but thats the only time these days.

I only read newspaper ocassionally. Reading it everyday is not one of my habits but once I get to read it, my favorite part to scan over are the entertainment and lifestyle section. It's not that I don't care about the news and the headlines, it's just that I'm not into reading it more often. If a news catches my attention, then I'll go grab it and read it. But that's all.

Newspaper: Source of knowledge and entertainment - newspaper
I read my favorite local newspaper every day. That's where I get all of my local news and event notifications from. I'm interested in world news as well, but those stories only get a page or two in the newspaper so I turn to the television and the internet for that. I think it's important for people both young and old to be aware of what's happening in their communities and throughout the world. Knowledge is power, as they say.

I do read the newspaper daily, because my Mother takes the paper and then she gives it to me. I never was much of a newspaper reader in the past. Since my Mother is elderly and has poor eyesight I read the obits for her so she can send flowers to those she knows. I also live in a small town and the newspaper keeps me updated on what is going on around my town. Things like what new businesses are going up or what businesses are closing. I also read about the events taking place in my town. I do read the national news online and watch cnn, but for me to know what is taking place right here in my hometown I must read the paper.

I like to read the newspaper, but it's not a must do thing in my life. It seems that I have really lost most of my interest in the news no matter where it comes from, because to me it is just depressing anymore. Or it is just full of celebrity gossip and I just don't care what goes on in a celebrity's life. It's their life I don't need to be poking my nose in it.

yes i still read the newspaper despite having all other sources, it has a different feeling as you also in control like reading books can't be replaced by ebooks :) But I find that i don't read much as i did before, I skip many articles and news as i already saw it on TV or online!

Yes, I read the newspaper everyday. I kinda scan it when I wake up just before I have a bath and then read it when I have time later in the day. I try my hand at the crossword and have varying degrees of luck/frustration. The newspaper I read is The Hindu - one of India's most popular newspapers. I rarely read any online issues as I find the paper version so much more comfortable!

I read newspaper everyday. I don't feel good if I don't get to read in the morning. I think it's addictive. But I think it's a healthy addiction. TV or internet just don't suffice. Reading newspaper brings more satisfaction.

Yeas I have a very bad addiction of it. If I do not find news paper in the morning I become sad for that. Though I do not spend much time on it but I look forward to have a superficial glance on each of the page. After reading the newspaper for say around 20-30 minutes, I start doing other thimgs.

I still do read newspaper these days even though we could already access a lot of current affairs and informations on the internet. But I am not usually buying my newspaper everyday. My local town has no regular supply of newspaper, that's why. We have to travel 40 kms away for the store selling current newspaper, that is far.

No, not really. While traveling I prefer music and at home I prefer news channels. Sometimes I read newspapers for local city news and happenings. At work, if I get some time, I navigate through online addition of newspapers. I think in the era of internet and television, reading newspapers has become very less.
