Your Weekend Guide to the Best Newspaper Features

There’s nothing quite like reading a physical newspaper. The feel of the pages between your fingers, the sound of them rustling as you turn them… it’s a tactile experience that can’t be beat. But even if you’re someone who prefers to read news online, there’s no denying that newspapers still have their place. In fact, according to a study by the Pew Research Center, 43% of Americans said they get at least some of their news from print newspapers, compared to only 24% who said they get it from digital sources. So what is it about newspapers that keep people coming back for more? There are a few key things that make newspapers like so engaging, even in the digital age. For one, they offer a level of depth and detail that you can’t find elsewhere. In-depth articles give you a chance to really understand the story behind the headlines, and with print newspapers, you can take your time reading them without feeling like you have to hurry up and click away before something else pops up on your screen. Another thing that makes newspapers so great is their variety. Sure, you can find news online from a variety of sources, but with a newspaper, you get everything in one place. You can read about local news, national news, world news, sports, weather, entertainment… all without having to switch between different websites or apps. And if you’re looking for something specific, most newspapers have handy indexes that make it easy to find what you’re looking for. So the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed by the constant news cycle on your social media feed, why not try reaching for a physical newspaper instead? You might be surprised by how much more engaged you are with the stories. Plus, there’s nothing quite like starting your day with a cup of coffee and a good old-fashioned paper. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
