Deseret News
Letter to the Editor

I enjoy reading the newspaper early in the morning when I eat breakfast. However, the delivery is often late in the morning or not at all. Consequently, I have subscribed to the email version of the Deseret News. It was a pleasant surprise to discover how much more enjoyable it is to read the electronic version. The news items I select are easier to read on my computer screen than in the printed version. A selected news item is continued in its entirety instead of me having to search through the paper for the continuation of the story.

Not only do I now read more news items, but I also scan more advertisements in detail. The printed version of The New York Times crossword puzzle has too small print to bother with. Now I can work on both crossword puzzles because I can control the type size.

My wife prefers the printed Deseret News. She usually reads the paper later in the day or a day or so after it was delivered. The electronic Deseret News subscription is so inexpensive that I kept my home delivery just for her. The newspaper is also often available at 2 a.m. or 5 a.m. Isn’t modern technology wonderful?
