Reading From Cover To Cover

Papa’s favorite newspaper is The Daily Tribune, a very “thin” newspaper. His favorite columnist is, of course, its editor-in-chief and publisher, Ninez Cacho-Olivares. But today, after going to the market with Mama, he brought home a copy of The Philippine Daily Inquirer, a very “thick” newspaper.

Like most broadsheets, the Inquirer has plenty of pages. I usually read only a few news items, commentaries, and articles. But to make me feel the money was well spent, my eyes scan the whole pile of papers, going through all those bold letters (especially those of the headlines) and creatively designed fonts and advertisements (I love reading ads). Sometimes, of course, I skip the first or last phrases in the title, even though I’ve got four long-ranged eyes. This is how I economically read newspapers from cover to cover.

Today’s paper is particularly interesting.
