Do you still read newspaper today with internet is more and more popular ? My father still reads newspaper everyday though he also reads news online sometimes.I think many old people keep this custom at present. In my childhood,I liked reading newspaper very much.But it's seems the news on internet are updated and many young people are apt to get information on internet. What about you?

Yes, I still read newspaper despite I can read news through the net. Every morning, it's became a routine of mine and for me, it's much better to read in newspaper than in the internet.

I still read newspaper today but it's only when I don't readily have access to internet service. I equally read newspaper when I'm traveling to kill time. I prefer listening to news either on television or radio. I equally read online news. If not for the essesntial service rendered by newspapers (at least with reference to a particular community), I would have said that the days of newspapers are numbered.

I read the newspaper, although i don't buy it i read it at work or i read my mum or dads newspaper, I would probably say i read the news on the internet as much as i do read it from the newspaper

when i far away from home,i often read newspaper in the subway.i suppose newspaper should not be withdraw from our lives in the modern times,it still important to our life.for example,when we get out of station in a strange city,we must buy a newspaper of local area without internet.but who knows whether newspaper will withdraw or not in the future cos internet have expand everywhere in our lives.

I read three newspapers everyday. I prefer reading the actual paper. I certainly look at the headlines on my Yahoo page and read the article if I'm interested. But I don't read the paper on line. I'm in my mid fifties. I don't think that's old.

i have never really been one to read the newspaper. i do not find it enjoyable and i hate the large cumbersome pages. the only time i ever really bought the newspaper is when i was looking for a job and now i do that online so i never buy them a all anymore.

Very seldom. And if I do, I usually read the cartoon feature first, then those that really interest me.

I don't think I've picked up a paper in years. Over here in the US, I wouldn't even know which one I'd even like. Back in the UK, the vast majority of them would annoy me inordinately by covering nothing but gossip and celebrity news.

Most of my news come from the internet these days. I don't watch tv as much as i used to. It seems every newspaper and every TV news channel now make their contents available online so it is easy to access them at any time. That way you can choose exactly what you want to read and or watch and ignore the rest. And it is all free.

I'd like to read news online. I don't like that much paper. I don't know how to handle them. I'd like the environment with no paper. Everything can do on the computer.

yes i read newspaper regularly.It has become a ritual for me to read the paper in the morning.I feel my day is incomplete without reading the traditional form of newspaper. Though the papers are available online too but the feel of holding the piece of paper in the hand is too good to be resisted.Moreover i am in habit of taking it along with me to the toilet.I find it better than the online one coz it is more descriptive and i am used and well versed with the pattern of the pages,i.e. where to find what.

I have stopped reading newspapers currently. However, my father still does. He just cannot do without it. I have started to read e-papers nowadays. It's part of my latest go green, save the earth venture. We can save many trees by not reading paper newspapers!! Yes many!! Let's join hands for a greater cause. Will have to convince my father as well. Thanks.
