I get a physical Houston Chronicle Wednesday and Sunday (the two big days for grocery store ads and coupons). I subscribe to the E-edition and read it every time I can get my iPad (easier said than done around here, it's mostly used for Netflixing). I could also read it on my laptop but rarely do. I also read the Wall Street Journal online.
