What is happening to the newspaper? I am 79 years old and like to start my day reading the paper with my cup of coffee. Thankfully, I have a carrier who delivers the paper faithfully and at an early hour. My husband passed five years ago, but it was a ritual for him to first read the local section while I read section A.
We would be in a pickle trying to delve it up now. I understand economics must now dictate news and advertisements being condensed into two sections. However, what happened to the Sunday paper? The only fillers were the funnies (thank God for that!) and a coupon insert. No Parade Magazine? No store ads?
I pay for home delivery by the year. I don’t want to have to read the newspaper online. I like the feel of the newspaper and the joy of turning the page. I am an avid reader. I have a Kindle but I have a houseful of books, both old and new, because I like to hold the book. I use the Kindle for use in waiting rooms.
Are you trying ease out of hard copies of the newspaper? I appreciate there still is a hard copy.
Is this the future of the newspaper?
