As a kid, reading the newspaper was a huge part of everyone’s life. Reading the newspaper was a part of every morning and evening, especially in cities that had the morning and an afternoon newspaper. Newspapers taught kids how to read, analyze and learn about the news, current events and the world.

I could not wait to get the paper and read every word in the morning while eating my cereal and in the evening sitting on the living room floor. It is a darn shame that newspapers have become a thing of the past. Unfortunately, in this day and age, the internet and short news clips have taken over the news. Newspapers used to be way to read the news, the entire news story. If you are lucky enough to have a newspapers in your town or you can buy out of town newspapers, try and get them whenever you get a chance and read them.

very very nice essay



Nice post, thanks for the share! I am a avid newspaper, magazines, books and blogs reader. While browsing I came across Bookmymagazine.com, a leading online books and magazines store which lists all the latest books and magazines of different genres, feel free to visit them.
Sometimes I find it entertaining to sit among friends as they discuss current events. They state their opinions and debate with each other. However, what you say about being able to take part in every conversation makes a lot of sense to me. It can be quite thrilling to have an opinion and to share it with others. http://www.kendallcountynow.com/yorkville/
