my sister usually grabs a newspaper everyday and each time she does, the very first thing she would mind an eye on is the daily horoscope segment. it makes me sigh when she talks about the fortunes and misfortunes written under her zodiac. LOL. but i, as someone who really wants to get an extra source of income first takes the page on the classified ads to check on the job vacancies that suit my qualification. next to it would be the editorials, the feature articles and so on and so forth. how about you?

I read the front page first, then the last page. After that I slowly read the whole pages.I have seen some people read the sports page first or the film page. But I don't like that.

I usually read the front cover page because those really are the most important events going on,and then I continue on the entertainment stuff and the events that are going around in my city.

Hi WendhieRN. I took up the habit of how my dad reads the local newspaper. I always start at the back of the newspaper and read from there to the front. It's not a very big paper so there is no problem reading it that way. The newspaper published in the town where I used to livehas anywhere from 2 to seven sections in it. The first page that I would read was the Obituaries. I guess I wanted to see if my ex-husband was listed there. Then I read it from the front page to the back through all the sections. The only exception was I did not read the sports section.

The first thing that I read is the front page then I skip to the classifieds then I work my way back. I am really weird that way.

As i'm intrested in sports and reading articles. I read first the sports page and completing that i will move to articles page. I usually buy Times of India newspaper. In this newspaper articles are very good to read.

I tend to read it from front to back in order unless I'm particularly looking for something.

It's always the front page and followed by the order of pages. I get a little annoyed if its all mixed up.

i usually read the news section first everytime i read the paper... after that, i read the letter from the readers' section and sometimes sport... that's about it... i hardly read the horoscope section as i don't really believe in them... i only believe in God and only Him knows my future and what is going to happen with my life... take care and have a nice day...

am more into the big hot news. i love reading about people and what happened with their lives. i read crimes as well so that i'll know what caused or trigged the crime from happening and i also, like you sister read my zodiac horoscope, though i honestly dont believe what was written there. i just read it for the heck of it but i dont make it a guide or something for my life. i read the feature articles and short stories because they are more friendly and light. i seldom read the editorial articles, because i find some of these articles opinionated and biased.

After waking up i like to see news paper first, so that my day will be good by knowing my zodaic and current news. Firstly i read my zodiac sign , then the news.

I check the Business and Finance page first. I have to see the stock market reports and other business news the first thing in the morning. Once I am done with it, I close the newspaper and throw it away :) There is nothing that interest me other than the Business and Finance pages. I don't like to read reports about terrorism, crime, celebrities, page 3 people and who went where and did what or who said what to whom kind of reports. Thanks

latest fashion and showbiz chika.. I am not fond of current events, I find it too boring to read, rather to watch them on T.V..
