I read a newspaper the other day ... yep, that's it

I got to work on Thursday with a breakfast sandwich and cup of coffee.
Turned on my computer and was getting ready to settle in with a quick run through email, iGoogle, rss feed updates while I enjoyed breakfast.

But what? Windows is updating No. 3 of 18. 18 updates were taking for-ever. So I snuck into the next office and picked up .. wait for it ... The New York Times.

Yes. I read the newspaper and ate my breakfast while I waited for Windows to get its act together.

I had glanced through a paper in September at a hotel in Montreal. And I check out the headlines when I go to Whole Foods every few weeks. But my news reading is all online on the Web or my phone these days.

It was fun. I may have read some stories I wouldn't have stumbled upon online. I'll probably do it again sometime ... when Windows needs to hijack my computer.

It's a daily pleasure I maintain -- for now.

Although my chosen paper closed in the Spring. I am now reading my 2nd choice.

There is still a charm to it, isn't there?

I miss the solidity of an actual newspaper, but don't imagine I'll subscribe to one again ever. I'll just have to enjoy them when I visit my parents. I do understand why this was a "perfect moment" worthy-moment!

The nice thing about reading the paper is that it doesn't link to a bunch of other stuff that piques your curiosity but you really don't have time for leaving you with just one simple task and more than enough time.

I am visiting from Lori's Perfect Moment Monday.

I think reading the newspaper can be blissful. I'm so glad you got to read and enjoy it!

It is sadly a dying art and a major part of our country's history. It will be interesting to see what happens to print news in the next 10 years.
