Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Reading The Newspaper - Aloha!

When was the last time you sat with tea and read a newspaper and smelled the ink?

I don't like smelling newspaper or money. They make me sneeze out my life!  But I'll read it later after it's been used. 

I think I have done this this year, but it's foggy :)

  1. I'm subscribed to our little local hometown newspaper. It comes twice a week and I always check it out cover to cover. I don't like the feel of newspaper, though. It's one of those things like fingers on a chalkboard to me - just rubs me the wrong way and I feel like the ink gets on my hands.

    Happy Autumn!

  2. It's been years since I've actually read a newspaper - I get all my news online! :)

    Fall Has Arrived!

  3. Now with my Kindle I no longer read the paper version. I really do not miss it.

  4. I get my news it's been years, and never really read it sitting down drinking something...usually with it spread out over the floor because the thing was so unweildy. I read books and magazines with tea though!

  5. I love curling up with a great book and a nice warm cup if green tea~~

  6. Sad to say, I have a whole stack of unread papers. By the time I get to read them, the news is old.

    Have a great Friday!

  7. I can't even guess at this one. My hubby and I gave up our daily newpaper deliver back in 2002!

    Happy Friday to you,

  8. I have magazines that comes to the house, but not newspaper. I am not sure I like the smell of ink. lol

  9. I haven't read a newspaper in over a year, but I love sipping hot cocoa while looking at magazines!

  10. I used to have the newspaper delivered everyday but rarely read it. When I did (drinking coffee, not tea)it was mostly to find out about events around town or for the crossword puzzle, comics, sudoku etc. I cancelled my subscription a few months ago. But when I did get it, I didn't like the smell either. Must have been the ink.

  11. I don't read the paper much, I get all my news online. I don't like the smell either.

  12. It has been a long time since I picked up an actual newspaper. I read my news online.

  13. Never had tea and newspaper in one sitting, I don't think. I haven't read the last two weeks' worth of newspapers, but I guess I did before that.

  14. To tell you the truth I don't like what's on the news, but as far as reading the paper I use to have to take the train to work when I worked in beautiful Downtown Chicago, but I'm retired now since 2004. So I guess its been a very long time. Thanks for stopping by, and yes I think it is true about some sons, but my youngest son NAHHHHHHHHHHH He's a mama's boy still at 32. Gotta love em'!!!

  15. New follower from Boost my Blog Friday blog hop! Hoping you follow back!! =0)

  16. I love to read the Sunday paper for breakfast. I don't get a lot of time to read before church, but I still like to do it.

    You should trying picking apples one day.

  17. Oh boy, I don't remember when the last time I read newspaper. Kindle kills all the hard copies around here.

    Thanks for visiting..

  18. I'm not huge on reading the newspaper myself, but once in awhile something will catch my attention and I'll flip through it :)

    I do really like that news-press smell though xD
