One of my most beloved morning activities is reading a newspaper while enjoying a good cup of coffee. The best day for that activity, both in terms of how much time I have to spare and the paper I get to read, is definitely Sunday. Sunday papers are exploding with content, from my usual interests (education, food) to ones I would otherwise never explore. My go-to is The New York Times, but I also love pouring through the San Francisco Chronicle and then heading to my computer to get lost in the online news world.
So for you, my favorite reads from the Sunday New York Times‘ today. I guess it’s subjective, but whatever. Just enjoy. PS: Nothing compares to reading Sunday papers, or any day for that matter, in print. Get out there and buy a real newspaper. I dare you.

I love these kinds of stories. It’s literally about staplers. In the Sunday New York Times. Staplers. I wonder how that story got pitched…But it’s a good one, about how so many paper-related accoutrements have been replaced by a digital counterpart. Except staplers. The Attachment That Still Makes Noise
