Reading newspaper everyday is good habit, I think. It is benifit for you to know the internal or external affairs, others' comments on these events, to read novels and even to find jobs and so on. However, with the prevelance of electronical equipment, more people read news from the internet rather than from newspaper. In my opinion, reading newspaper is still the first choice to know the world. Because there are too much news on the internet and then it is hard to decide which is true and useful. So chances are that one may waste so much time on finding useful news. However, by reading newpaper, in most cases, you can belive that the news is true and significant. So the news published in newspaper is selected. But different people has different favor of ways of reading. What's your favorite?

As far as I am concerned, I think I seldom have the free time to read some news paper in my daily life. I just usually try my best to surf the Internet.With the help of the Internet, I still can know much about the news happened in the recently days. I enjoy surfing net that brings me the knowledge.But for I am so young, I usually read the newspaper called China daily,which is a very good newspaper for me to read everyday,which I have known many important things happened in China.

hello enix119, It is really sad that newspaper is now losing its importance as people prefer to get into internet and surf for news. My father also had opinion just like yours. He also said that reading paper everyday was a good habit that not only gave you knowledge but also made you more intelligent as you remain updated with the latest happenings all over the world. Also I think that since on internet you have lot of other choices available, one may not concentrate deeply into news, but just have a quick glance and move to other interesting things like playing games, watching movies or chatting etc. As they say too much is also not good. When there was no internet , people read the whole paper with interest as they had no other things to distract their concentration.....but internet.....BIG DISTRACTION.

I don't read the newspaper everyday. However, I do make an effort to try and read it at least once every week. I must admit that sometimes I don't get a chance to even do that, but I do make an effort to read it and know what it is going on.

I dont read newspaper at all. I only read newspaper if I am in a restaurant that offer it free reading or its part of the order for you to have newspaper like breakfast. I guess it offer in jollibee every breakfast meal you have they will give you newspaper. I would rather watch program news in the credible station like ANC or CNN. Those I will get information about our society outside our country and in our country.

I read the newspaper every day as well. I also check newssites online every now and then to read interesting articles or to find out if any 'breaking news' has happened. I like knowing what's going on this world. It's true that there is a lot of news on the internet, but I don't read all of it, just the articles that interest me. And I only go to sites of actual newspapers, so you know the news is true. I still prefer the good old fashioned newspaper though!

I do make it a point to read the newspaper everyday. It just gives us so much information that it is easy to be connected to everything that is happening around us.

The Daily Mail is horrible. Don't even bother reading it. I can tell you roughly what headlines they'll write in the next few months right now: 'Immigrants flood Britain! Run for the hills!' 'Broken Britain: First it was the blacks, now even the GAYS have rights!' 'Gordon Brown makes children and small animals cry...vote Cameron!' 'New study proves all foreigners are bad people' 'Outrage as decent, white, middle aged, middle class tax payers forced to fund facilities for poor black people. What is Britain coming to?' 'The immigrants are coming!' 'Muslims are bad. Christians rule.' 'Expert warns: Immigrants are crippling British Society'

When I was working I would read the Daily News each and everyday. In fact it was an addiction. I could not start the day without my Daily News Paper. I did this for thirty-two years while working. Now that I haven't worked for two years and moved west I don't ready the paper at all. I use to receive the Albuqueque Journal for about two years but decided to give it up because I just didn't like this paper at all. I guess I just miss the Daily News and there is no paper that can takes its place.

Yes, I do read newspaper each day whenever I get time. Although newspaper news are old now because I watch news on TV and online too but the in the morning atleast I read the head lines and inside story which are little different, I mean the local news too which are in the newspaper. Newspapers are today's world's encyclopedias. The importance of newspaper has been increased greatly by the spread of education. Education sharpens one's curiosity about events going on in and around us.

I hardly ever read a newspaper now adays. At work we used to just read whoevers paper was lying around. Now I read the news on the internet email site I use and watch the morning news while eating breakfast. Any newspapers in our house are free local papers and mostly get used to add to the compost in the garden.

Yeah,I totally agree with you that reading newspaper is a good habit. I try to read newspaper everyday but sometimes it's hard for me to persist. So now I ask myself to read some news on internet everyday. It's very important to capture news and update our thought and others.I am a person hard to persist and I will try my best to correct this bad habit!
