I read the Sunday paper almost every week, although the other days I get my news online. Reading the Sunday paper with my coffee is kind of relaxing.

How many of your like to actually hold a newspaper and read it?  everything is so computerized now, that it seems that newspapers, books etc are becoming extinct.  I still like to hold a newspaper or book in my hand and read it although I have no problem with them being computerized.  But it's putting editors and such out of work as physical newspaper sales are down. 

Every Sunday morning with a cup of coffee at local breakfast diner.

Never. I have WSJ subscription and am so upset that they send the paper. I just want the online subscription.

I do not think people are reading newspaper, because it is better to go online to get the news.

Oh, heavens, no. I read it online only. The newspapers are going broke. Another sign of the times.

Ya, I still read tangible things like books,mags, newspapers....nothing replaces that touching the pages as you turn the pages, the feel of the texture of the book,the sounds it makes as you flip those pages & enjoy the smell of a new book after it's taken out of it's wrapper. Sadly, the newspaper we get now is like 5 pages long. I remember when esp. on sunday, the paper would be a bulk almost weighing about a pound!  :wave:

Yeah I still read the paper...more than online edition. I find it just easier and faster to skim through it and read only what interests me.  And I mostly get the paper for the ads and coupons.  :)

I gave up the newspaper years ago, before everyone starting their online versions.  Reading the news just stopped being something I did.

Now, I visit a few news websites every day, just to keep up with what's going on.  It's basically just skimming the headlines for important things.
