    Just curious to get a snapshot of people’s reading habits really, you can say why if you like but it’s not important.

    The very first answer, from a Daily Mail reader… 😯

    Metro, for me. Freeness :D!

    I don’t take any newspapers as I’m frankly not that interested in what the owner/editor think nor do I need telling what to think

    As for the celebrity obsessed tabloids – they are just the new opium for the people – keeps the plebs from realising quite how messed up this world is

    Lovely piece of English language. I think I’ll try to use it more.

    In response, none coz I’m abroad but the Grauniad or the Sunday Times when I’m back

    Metro, for me. Freeness :D!

    Thought Metro was owned by the same company that publishes the Daily Mail?

    Metro for me as well

    Grauniad of course! Plus Scotsman on a Friday, Sunday herald, Private eye, Bike – (the motorcycle one) Superbike

    I read the mail, express, sun and evening news at work.

    Private eye is the only one I buy these days, and it’s more of a periodical I would say. I stopped buying daily newspapers around the same time as I aquired an internet connection.

    For music needs “The Wire”, and film etc “Little white lies”.

    The Times Mon-Fri, Saturday Times, Sunday Times love newspapers so much better than Online news in general…still look at BBCnews site and Timesonline at a push….

    all papers recycled, Local Govt housing related articles passed to fellow workers (they love me!!) sports sections passed on to loacl coach who takes articles out to encourage his rising sports stars!!!!

    I refer the honourable gentleman to the answer Mr trailmonkey gave some moments ago.

    I’m with the Metro guys. Except I don’t “take” it now I work from home.

    I like how it just does the news, mostly straight from the PA feed, with no political slant and no comment pieces.

    It’s up there with The Sun and Daily Mail as a well-honed product, IMO.

    Usually buy Guardian or Times when it’s my own money though.

    Guardian on Saturday (quite often) and Thursday (when I remember). Radio 4 gives me all the news so I skip that bit in the paper.

    The Forester and the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Review. Both local weeklys.
    Don’t bother with dailys, mostly keep up with the news via the radio.

    The Times here.

    Occasionally have a look at Metro (just recycled Daily Wail rubbish) and London Lite (recycled Evening Standard rubbish)

    Cumberland and Westmorland Herald………ooh ooh ooh just read the headlines and apparently Penrith is getting a music festival in the summer πŸ˜€

    Guardian on a saturday.

    Normally just read RSS feeds on NetNewsWire though – its good for getting all the different paper’s slants on an issue. And the Daily Mail comments sections are a goldmine of unintentional (tragi)comedy.

    Guardian a couple of times a week.

    Yep, Guardian, though not daily, whenever but nearly always on a Saturday and The Observer is the only sunday paper for me.

    Surprising number of Guardian readers – are all the torygraph and daily wail readers in hiding?

    Any – Don’t read em but they are handy for drying out wet cycling shoes.

    The Times and the Telegraph when i go in the union shop (half price you see).

    And The Sunday Times is the Sunday papers.

    Guardian and the Observer but not very often. Also buy the local paper (Salisbury Journal).

    Used to quite like the Times, but it’s been murdered by Murdoch IMO. Seems to be the Sun but with more imaginative use of the dictionary.

    Monday to Friday – the times and evening standard, occasionally FT
    Saturday – the guardian
    Sunday – sunday times

    some of the time they end up in the recycling bin half read…
