Which paper?

As a Guardian reader, my normal Sunday paper (if I get one) is the Observer. But I'm boycotting it at the moment. Any suggestions as to what I should get instead?

Not a lot of options
I suspect that this leaves you with a choice between the Indescribablyboring-On-Sunday or (being in Brussles) a respectable foreign language newspaper.

When i get a newspaper, Sunday or otherwise, it's usually The Independent.

We get The Independent as well as the Observer on Sundays.

I'd like to offer a dissenting voice: don't get any papers. The Sindy is unbearably smug, the Sunday Torygraph predictably right-wing and the Sunday Times dull.

Buy the New Scientist and wait until the weekend to read it?

Or, if you an an alternative to New Scientist, get Fortean Times...

What he said; I stopped buying weekend papers ages ago, I trawl newsfeeds and the papers websites or just read blogs, at least I know I can't trust a blog completely.

Since subscribing to the London Review of Books, we have little urge to buy either the Saturday Guardian or a Sunday paper at all. Reading the LRB makes you realise how dreadful the newspaper supplements really are.

It's very wordy compared to the papers, which is arguably more damning of them than of the LRB; this is compensated for by the fact that it's fortnightly, as you couldn't do justice to a whole copy unless you actually had several dense hours to do it in. But I've never read political, historical or arts analysis like it anywhere else: you sometimes briefly think you're going to get it from Private Eye's writers, but then they always get bored and fool around instead.

Well, LJ just ate my comment but it was basically Guardian = great, Observer = trash, best Sunday = Sunday Times.

I stopped buying Sunday papers years ago as they all seemed to be full of consumerist fluff and little to nothing of interest to me.

I either trawl the web or go with buying a Saturday paper (guardian or indy) and reading it on Sunday.

Get the Economist. It's our default train journey purchase.

Make that two votes for The Economist. I'm a subscriber; Sunday is the chance I get to read it.

If you're in Brussels, and just until you get over your snit with the Observer, - All the news that's maybe fit to print aka The New York Times.

Or in the International Herald Tribune for that matter.
