Comfortable way of reading

Share this article

I welcome the new format of the Observer. My only criticism is the size – trying to read and hold 136 pages for over an hour is just too much for my poor old arms and hands.

I split the paper in half, reading about 60 pages at a time and this provided a very much more comfortable way of reading it.

Could you not divide the paper into two sections and have the ads, anniversaries, births, death and sports in a section 2, as so many other newspapers do.

Also have the TV pages in a separate section as suggested by one of your other readers, thus enabling readers to pull those (centre) pages out as one?
