Me and the Guardian Newspaper

I used to buy the Guardian newspaper on a daily basis when I was at university, mainly because of it was sold cheaply to students.

After university I had the paper delivered daily, but to be honest found the cost too steep. I tried the online subscription service which was cheaper but I found that I missed the portability of the actual printed edition and got tired very quickly of reading articles on a computer screen.

In the end I subscribed to the RSS feeds and just read a few articles a week. I still bought an odd printed copy and felt wrong when I did not have a copy.

Since then the Guardian had changed its digital edition to an outside provider and i considered buying a subscription. But the previous problems would still be the same. Then a I came across something unexpected.
