While we do not get currently have hardcopies of any newspapers delivered to our home on a daily basis, I love reading a physical newspaper and wish I had time to do so more often. And although we do subscribe to a couple of magazines (The Economist and Vanity Fair), like many of you I’m sure, I get most of my news on the internet and mostly in small snippets (hello, The Skimm).
When it happened for the 5th time in a span of just a couple of weeks that I was late to start my morning run because I was reading a New York Times article that popped up on my Facebook feed, I decided to do a post on the subject.
I’ve listed the 5 articles below; they’re not related but all interesting and well-written. It may take longer to read an entire article (probably the same amount of time it takes to read quite a few blog posts), but it is so, so worthwhile. So even if the NYT isn’t your cup of tea, especially during a time of such significant transition on a domestic and international basis, I encourage all of us to take the time to really read the news, whatever your chosen news outlet.
