    1. 1
    2. daily
    3. No
    4. 10-15, jumping around - maybe four regularly
    5. 2 daily
    6. Yes
    7. None; we get it free as a perk. If I ever leave the paper I will not suscribe except possibly for Sunday. The other paper I read Sunday is available at a nearby store and so I don't subscribe (plus, delivery would be a day later)
    8. Daily? None.
    9. No way in hell
    10. Rarely
    11. See No. 9

    To summarize ...

    Questions 1 and 2: I read two "newsprint" papers just about every day ... they're the two daily newspapers for our region. Also read the alternative weekly paper (which is now printed every other week).
    Question 3: I don't subscribe to any e-editions, and they're not easy to read online.
    Questions 4 and 5: I check three newspaper web sites fairly regularly. I occasionally (maybe 1-2 times a week) check about six others.
    Question 6: If I subscribe to the print edition, the newspaper's web site should be free for me to access. For other papers ... the three I read regularly ... yes, I'd consider paying a small fee.
    Question 7: We subscribe to one newspaper, daily and Sunday.
    Questions 8 and 9: There's a news/commentary/political cartoon blog I check about once a week; that's it. I wouldn't pay for it.
    Questions 10 and 11: I don't read any fan sites.
