I  got through an important initation rite to adulthood today. I ordered a newspaper. I have been reading newspapers from internet for free for years and circumvented the blockage which they have placed on reading but I started to feel a bit shamed over it since I should be paying for it. I kind of miss an actual paper newspaper but as it's cheaper and enviromental-friendly (less paper waste) I ordered a digital version.

Anyway, just thought to ask what newspapers you're ordering and/or reading?

I read the Tampa Bay Times, the BBC (I know it's not a paper, but I like it), Newsday, which is from New York, and sometimes papers from other cities for local stories.

The mister has the Daily Telegraph delivered to his tablet daily. I have neither the time nor the inclination to read papers, so I just do the occasional drop by To Vima and Kathimerini, in order to keep in touch with things back home.

i believe that it is critical to order your local paper in print, because the print newspaper is something that should be maintainted as a permentant recod of events, much easier than a digital version

I used to do that too but for some reason it just doesn't feel the same as reading a paper at home.

The Jerusalem Post

Interesting choice. Do you live in Israel?

Neither of my local newspapers is worth the paper they are printed on. They are only better than The Sun in that they have fewer pages, so less drivel.

What's a "newspaper"? Shocked

My wife reads something called "The Washington Post".  Well, the sports page anyway.  I get all the news I need from her. Grin

They do not have a paywall setup for articles that they have shared on social media. As long as it comes from a social media source, then there is no way pay to get around, so all I do is put it on social media
And technically maybe, but I would pay for it if I had the choice to get a print edition

Why, when there are still real, physical, made-out-of-paper-and-newsprint newspapers?  Not to mention whole real physical, made-out-of-paper-and-ink books of nothing BUT crosswords?







There's really no need to go without. Smiley
