Do you read the newspaper?


Do you read the newspaper?

When I was younger I used to read the newspaper quite often but not so much now days, some days I will buy a newspaper usually on a Saturday. When I do I like to read most of it but not interested in sport or racing.

I can remember the days when we used to get the paper delivered each Saturday but haven't done that in 20 odd years.

When I was a child I remember the paper boy coming around delivering the afternoon paper, yeah back then the paper came out twice a day morning and afternoon.

I know many people read the paper via a tablet or phone or sometimes a computer but not me I just can't be bothered to do so, I am a bit old fashion I like the feel and smell of a paper or a book.

Oh yes the paper boy - all gone now.
Don't get a newspaper but a few do in our street.

Paper delivery was my first job at age 11

I haven't got the paper in a while. Last time I did, we had neighbors who used to steal the Sunday. So I started getting up early, grabbing the paper out of the bag and filling the bag with old papers and nice wet dog poop. The problem soon ended.

I prefer paper to read. I have a tablet and use it but I far prefer paper to hold. feel, turn pages and enjoy.

I don't read the paper anymore. I get my news from the nightly TV station or from news feeds online. I especially like Yahoo news.

I get the Sunday paper only because it has the circulars in it and I want to know what's for sale. Our local paper isn't worth reading, you read a story and end up with more questions than answers so I get my news elsewhere.

Yest that is how I get my news each day as well

I also like to look through catalogues and I find the paper has only a few pages worth reading and a lot of dribble

We don't get the paper anymore and I believe our local paper only delivers 2 days a week now, anyway. Maybe. When we did get it delivered it would always sit there unread.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Yes that was why we stopped getting it delivered it would sit unread for days
