When Reading The Newspaper
25 Jun 07
It depends how much time I have. In an ideal world I would sprawl out on the bed reading the paper from cover to cover. I always tear as I go, removing coupons, items of interest and competition forms etc, then the rest goes into the recycle. On a bad day I speed read the lot, tear the coupons and put the paper onto a special pile I have to read later. I usually manage to catch up but after a week any that still have not been totally read go into the recycle. I have to admit I am suduko mad and always clip those to try to complete later lol.

No patience required. I absolutely love reading. If I won a lottery I would probably buy every newspaper and magazine I could read, and lots of books too. I was taught to speed read and this helps when time is short, but I don't find it nearly as satisfying as a nice long read. As to the tearing and clipping, that came from a time management course. Why read and then go back and find everything, tear and file as you go. The course cost me about $100 but I have made many times more that back just by actually clipping and using the coupons lol.

I never read through the whole newspaper. I usually look at the front to see the list of deaths. Just to make sure there was no one that i knew. Then i read "annies mailbox." It used to be ann landers. And i usually read the front. And thats about it.
