I don't buy newspapers but I get the free local newspaper and read it on the train in the mornings.

I pick up a newspaper when I go on vacation, if it is lying around at the office, or if someone offers it to me for free.  Occasionally I will look at a newspaper while I am at the library or read the headlines while at the grocery store.  I am pretty cheap and can't see parting with a dollar for something that will be trash within an hour and I can get just as much knowledge from the internet. When I do buy newspapers I will buy the specialized ones like Investor's business Daily, Barrons, Business Journal and sometimes the Wallstreet Journal because they provide me with a new perspective and I generally learn new things and catch on to market trends.

I also like to read a physical paper, especially on Sunday.

I was never a big fan of reading the physical paper. I didn't like that the ink would rub off on my hands. We still get a paper at work, and only the two older lawyers read it every day. I get my news off the internet.

I never really read a newspaper in the first place, but it is almost obsolete if you ask me.  It is much easier to get the information online or on broadcast news.  Of course, you have to find a trusted source...

We don't read a newspaper. Between the internet and TV we get all the news we need. Newspapers are almost obsolete. I do occasionally scan a small local weekly paper with local news but that's all and not all the time.

I read our local newspaper, the others not so much.  I do like reading hand-held books as I can always interrupt that activity at any time, use a bookmarker, and return to it as my schedule allows.  I suppose you can do something similiar with a Kindle but that would be just another appliance to have to keep charged.

I read a few columns in the newspaper and I read books when I have the time to, but it's hard to do when there are so many other things that you need to keep track of in life.

not in my town.  our newspaper sucks big time and costs a fortune. was reading it online for awhile but now they charge you to read it online !!!!

plus the delivery person could never get the paper on my porch,, it was always in my yard in a mud puddle or snow pile.  Gave up and told them to stick it where the sun doesn't shine lol

I still read an actual newspaper...my son actually delivers our Towns paper on a daily basis. They've tried to do away with it, but there are a lot of people who don't have access to the internet plus it would leave those that print the paper  jobless
