I get the USA Today delivered every weekday and buy Sunday New York Times. I get all the other specialized medical news online from email lists. Medical journals and magazines are sent to me by mail, free of charge, with which I get CMEs/CEs/ etc.

Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

I loved to "hold" the newspaper or book I was reading. I also never thought I would pay to read something online.

However, in this "gotta have it now" world we live in, the papers are almost out-of-date by the time you get them. I thought I would never like to read online, but then the paper I like to read, MPLS Star Tribune, started limited how many articles I could read for free each month.

Since I retired 11 months ago, I have read the paper exclusively online. I pay $7.96 a month and get the same content online, including pictures and ads, as the print version.

I will say that is my top limit however. If the price were to rise too much, I may have to reconsider.

I also read amazon books on my Ipad. Many of them have been free. I usually have a limit of $7-8 for a book, but have made exceptions.

When all is said and done, usually more was said than done.

I treat my subscription to the online WSJ as a deductible investment expense so I at least get that break on the price. Given how much I use the site and the amount of investments I am tracking, I consider it a bargain.
