ReadViewThink – January 17, 2020

By now, you may have noticed my news reading interests span a range of subjects. When a child and young teenager, news didn’t interest me, so pleasure reading of fiction books was a favorite pastime. The only non-fiction read was related to school assignments. When I was eligible to cast a vote in a Presidential election, television broadcast news aided me in choosing a candidate. Soon after becoming a parent, current events became important, especially those reported in local news outlets, since some news covered the area where I resided and could affect my family. In my 20s, I subscribed to a printed newspaper and read more than cartoons and horoscopes. From then on, I had a hankering to read more non-fiction than fiction. Once the Internet became a haven for all types of publishers, online became this reader’s main source for fiction and non-fiction reading material; and eventually, news became the main content read, especially after the horrific events of 9/11.

Okay, now you know a little bit about my journey to becoming an avid news reader. Further below, you’ll see what articles attracted my most attention over the past day or two.
