I prefer holding the newspaper by far. I realize that you would probably get the same information from both sources, but holding the newspaper and flipping through the pages seems so much more personal that simply scrolling down a screen. I try to avoid e-newspapers unless I'm searching for information that can't be found in the regular newspaper that comes every day. =P

Yes!I agree! Holding a news paper in hand is more personal and you can switch from one page to another at more ease.You shall not staring the computer screen more.Also,the habit of reading news papers are from the startings and habits die hard.

I enjoy holding a newspaper in my hand. I do occassionally read news articles online and sometimes enjoy it more than having to wade through a paper to get to it. While I can imagine become a online newspaper reading, I don't believe I will ever get to the point of wanting to read my books on line. I definitely enjoy holding a book in my hand.

I'd prefer to read the actual newspaper, cause it makes a nicer effect on me, just like your very much keen on what is happening in the country or in one's place. Holding newspaper is quite convenient as well cause you can carry it anywhere you want to read for example in your room, bathroom, dining area, kitchen, school, canteen, bus terminal and so on. And newspaper are almost complete in terms of information and current events that you want to know about. You can also cut out pictures from it and other news or information if you want to and paste them in school projects or the likes which you can't obviously do when you have E-newspaper. Before our family especially my dad subscribe to a broadsheet however lately he just read news via the internet I think he just can't spend that much on newspapers anymore especially now everything in the market got expensive.

If the e news paper were convinient then i would go with that. Usually i do find it easier to read from print but i dont like the way the paper smuges on your fingers.

I rarely read newspapers online or print. I've always hated touching newspapers, and getting that dark stain on my fingertips. Just plain icky. So, if I really need to check the news, I'll settle for online. I'm more of the pick the topic I like, so it will simply be just surfing for me. So for me, if print newspaper will disappear I would not miss it at all. Plus all it does, if you subscribe is become clutter, because after a day, they are old. Why don't we save trees and stop making them?..LOL

I prefer to hold the newspaper too. We spend so much time in front of screens pc/tv these days, it is not good for the eyes to spend all of our time looking at a box. Same with books, much better to have the thing in my hand so I can turn the page, rather than scrolling down my pc. Like the idea about listening though, would be handy when stuck in the car to be able to listen to the newspaper. That said, I guess it would be a lot like listening to the radio. :)

Holding the newspaper. I find it easier reading print material than from a computer screen.
