 Paper Trained
 People who know me have known that I’ve been a vo- racious reader all of my life. As a child, our parents en- rolled us in a library reading club for kids. I was hooked for life. When growing up on a military base in Machinato, Okinawa, I would frequent the base bookstore. All my money went toward paperbacks.
In the early ’80s, while I was training to become an emer- gency medical technician, I got myself a weekend job working for Honolulu Book Shops at Pearlridge Center. I became the weekend supervisor and took care of ordering Hawaiiana/local books and all the magazines. I was in heaven, as I could read whatever I wanted. Every week, I would be simultaneously reading a hardcover, two paperbacks and several magazines.
My reading habit has since waned due to lack of time and my ageing vision. But I still love reading printed material like occasional books and newspapers and magazines, of course. Many people I talk to are just like me and still enjoy reading printed material. If you’re reading MidWeek right now, you’re one of 250,000 weekly households that read a printed copy of our paper.
                                               As an edition of Honolulu Star-Advertiser, when you com- bine us with their astronomical readership, we easily surpass a half-million people who still like to read a tangible newspaper. Part of the reason, I believe, is that you can’t really trust what you get online through social and some mainstream media.
      And unlike radio and television advertising, which is fleet- ing, a newspaper has a definite shelf life that you can refer back to for consumer information. Besides, reading a printed newspaper has become a habit for most generations except maybe the newest ones. I don’t know about you, but I have an actual ritual when reading my Sunday Star-Advertiser.
        As soon as I wake up, I will let our dogs out and then feed them. I will retrieve my paper from the driveway, remove the plastic wrapper and smooth out all the creases as I place it on our kitchen counter.
      I will then methodically separate all the sections and ad- vertising circulars, and then reorder them in a stack. They are in order of what I will read first going all the way through to what I will read last.
      I’ll leave to go brush my teeth only to come back and find that my wife has deconstructed my stack to read the ad circu- lars, the Dining Out restaurant guide and Hawai‘i Renovation section. The sections are now sprawled out all over the counter. I would say something but then she might roll up the paper and whack me with it, which for her, is another useful reason to get a printed newspaper.
