    It’s an idea from another time, another era: getting a print newspaper delivered to your home or office so you can keep current on news. As noted newspaper consultant Ken Doctor recently wrote: “By 2020, we’ll be used to a few days a week of print, or maybe just ‘the Sunday paper,’ and wonder why we chopped down whole forests; didn’t we always have these tablets? Newsprint is going the way of the steam engine, to be visited in theme parks. U.S. newspaper companies are using only a little more than half of what they consumed, in newsprint, a decade ago.” So if that’s the case, how many times do you really want to read the newspaper in print each week? Every day? A couple times a week? Just on Sundays? Never? Vote in our poll and explain your print consumption pattern more eloquently in the comments below.
