Read a paper newspaper?
And if you do, is it delivered to your doorstep?
I come from a family of newspaper readers. My parents subscribed to two Hartford newspapers, when there were two Hartford newspapers. We also read -- depending on what was being published -- two or three New York Newspapers and one Boston newspapers. That was our family's daily weekday reading. We slowed down a little on Sunday, but we still had at least three newspapers every Sunday. It seemed normal to me, but as time went by I realized we were not the norm. It's no wonder that my mother organized a Girl Scout paper drive that funded taking our entire troop to the World's Fair in 1964. We certainly had the newspapers.
I subscribed to the Tennessean -- one of my favorite papers -- and the Banner when I lived in Nashville and have subscribed to the New York Times almost all of the years I have lived in New York. When I didn't subscribe I picked it up daily at the little news store near my apartment.
In the last few years I realize I get a lot of my news on-line. I read the Daily News and the NY Post on my phone, and often read the headlines for CBS News on the phone, too. The only paper I still get delivered is the New York Times, and right now my debate is whether to continue doing so. I can subscribe electronically and save almost half the cost of home delivery. I really enjoy doing the crossword on paper, but I'm not sure if I can't adapt to doing it electronically. I am leaning in the direction of electronic subscription, but this is a tough habit to break. I appreciate any thoughts that will guide me.
I can't believe I have worked four days this week and the weekend is just ahead. I am tired, but it's gone okay. I am going to have a very leisurely weekend and enjoy lemonade, relaxing and the Sunday New York Times.
Keep Cool and Enjoy Your Lemonade!
