How do you read your newspaper?

I start at the front page and browse. I look for anything new or interesting. I have a friend who is a reporter for the paper, so I look to see if he made the front page and read his article.

Then I look through the A section which includes national, international, and business news and the editorial pages. I look at the letters to editor to see if I recognize anyone or see a topic that intrigues me. I have several friends who routinely send in letters and get printed once or twice a year each. So it is fun day, if I recognize a name.

I look through the Metro section to see if there is anything I should be aware. I skip the obits.

I look through the Style section. First i look to see if the DC housewives have done anything- cause yaknow I'm a housewife in DC and they do exactly what I do. (blech). I love Carolyn Hax and Ask Amy and I read the comics. I save suduko and the crossword for later.

I don't generally read the sports section. I gaze at the specialty section of the day (Food, housing, Local...) to see if there is anything interesting.

We get our local paper everyday and I pretty much read everything or at least browse through stories I haven't already read online. The only thing I don't usually read is the sports section.

I get several newspapers every day. The local paper, I'll just parrot what you said. Your newspaper sounds exactly like mine. I also read the NY Times and USA Today. Those I scan

Our "local" paper is the Washington Post, so, it covers for a major paper too. I like to read the NYT occasionally on Sunday, but we don't get it delivered.

I don't get the Times or USA Today delivered either. I'm much too cheap. :-) We get them all at work. On Sundays I only read my local paper, which is pretty big although I've never weighed it. ;-)

I go to tmz.com - gotta get my fix.


Fox5new.com if there are traffic or alert issues like school closings.


Weather.com for weather. (Or wunderground.com)


I read the food section of our physical paper.
