Do you regularly read a newspaper (actual paper - not just online)?

Only for the sports section and the Sunday cartoons.

My dad stopped getting the Wall Street Journal because he couldn't see the font anymore. I'll read it if I'm @ my sister's house. I miss getting one though

I read the comics section and occasionally an article I see that looks interesting

No, but I regularly read Newsweek, a news magazine

No; however, the online paper I receive is an actual photo of the real paper. The only difference is that I can touch an article, to have it isolated and expanded for easy reading. Even all the advertisement pages are there.

I read one small local paper; but mostly I read on my way to find the suduko.

I get the local paper twice a week because it's cheaper to have 2 days home delivery with a digital subscription than to have all digital. I'm guessing that's because they're the ad-heavy days, & I do like the ads for the 2 groceries where I shop,

and the coupons in the Sunday paper. I read some of the paper both days. I do feel bad about the mostly wasted newsprint & keep meaning to switch to all digital.

I do find pleasure in reading the printed USA Today while drinking coffee when I'm staying in hotels.

For me, newspapers only end up as clutter. I'm better off with my tablet.

I still look forward to checking the local paper everyday and clipping the coupons. We then reuse the newspaper for dogpaper.

When I was a kid I loved the Sunday paper. I read it front to back every weekend. Now, I usually read the news online. I do read The Week magazine every Sunday. I have a subscription.

I am a subscriber and usually scan it. I focus on the front page, the opinion page to read other's statements about pols or schools or beach driving, deed recordings, foreclosures, obits, coupons, the comics.

Until circa recently, I read the USA Today Monday-Friday, religiously. After it went to $2, I've found various other outlets, plus the USA Today app. No WONDER the$e rag$ are dying a $low death!

Haha why? It's old news before it hits your doorstep. I don't read newspapers for the same reason I don't own a horse and buggy. I move forward with technology.

My husband reads the whole thing every day. I generally only read select front page articles, the weather and some of the opinion page stuff regularly.

The Tacoma News Tribune every Sunday because they pay me to buy it (in coupons), so I might as well read it. And the weekly Enumclaw Courier Herald on Wednesdays, because it is interesting to keep up with the doings and goings on in the big city.

My house gets the NY Times, WS Journal, the SJ Mercury, and the China Post. I'll pick one up and read it maybe 3 times a week. I'm generally unimpressed, but I suppose getting the institutional views are important too.

No haven't regularly read a paper paper since 2007, but I do subscribe and pay to read online, which must be much better for them. I pay the same and they save printing and delivery costs.
