I read the WSJ and NYT digitally but for some reason prefer Barron's in hardcopy. Maybe because then I read through page by page and when I read it digitally, I look at the titles and end up reading almost nothing. Also, ask if you want a delivery person in a car with a bad muffler driving by your house every morning at 3am, maybe setting off alarms.
Edit: I had a paranoid moment coincide with a little time on my hands and so, the house knows if someone approaches.

Those are great deals - $1 or less per issue that you buy retail at $5.
Online is fine, but paper issues has lot more data.
For my weekend summaries, I start on Friday as weekend stories get posted online slowly, and by 9pm Central Friday, most of the weekend issue is available online. Then I supplement with paper copy that is home delivered around 6am Saturday. That is why you see my Part 1 post so early.
Also, Barron's/WSJ used to have an online tool that let you manipulate a list of all companies by sector/industry but they eliminated it. I found it helpful looking for companies to research. Barron's tried to eliminate some data from the paper a year or so ago and the readership revolted. They brought much of it back. They're bringing Market Lab data online now - a copy of what's in the paper, but there's till a lot of data, stock tables mostly, in section M that's not online, as far as I know. Stock tables hearken back a bit, before the internet and are of no use to me.
Thanks to all who responded. I ordered the 2 year print plus digital subscription for $200. Price will increase to $29.99 per month at the end of the subscription term. While ordering online, they offered to add "MarketWatch" to my subscription at a cost of $9.99 per month. I declined that option because I wasn't sure what Market Watch provides.
