All of you must know that all leading newspaper publish an online version of their daily prints, but i am sure a few would have just tried to discover how to read them online. Shankee presents a guide to reading newspapers online with tutorials, websites and software to help you guide through.
Reading a newspaper
The best way to read the newspaper is by directly going to the newspaper’s online site and searching or an e-paper option. While i found that most offer the e-paper version of their newspaper free while a few charged a fees like The Hindu. So i configured ways to even read those which will be described later in the post. SO to know the website of any newspaper just run a google search of you may go to onlinenewspapers.com, which is like a newspaper database containing websites of newspaper available in different countries.
There are few sites that offer free newspaper reading. Here are a few i liked-
This was one of the best site i figured out for reading a newspaper. it shows each page as a big image with good tools and easy to use features. It displays each page as a huge picture that can be zoomed or moved. It requires free registration that is simple and easy. Use this promo code for additional features “EARTH 2008”
Times Of India
It is the best e-paper i came across. TOI worked out a really good newspaper, it is interactive and made to be read easily. The page can be zoomed and each article can be separately viewed just by clicking on it.
It is one of the most famous and most loved newspaper in the world. The website of New York Times was really good but i wanted the view of today’s new print as it was, so it took me a bit of time to discover that.
Wallstreet JournalThe ultimate newspaper for business and financial news which has carved a niche of itself. It features different editions for different part of the world. Although i couldn’t find a e-paper on the site itself but i read it on other sites.
