All a bit drab on a Sunday aren't they? Would just be interested more than anything.

I get the Sunday Mail or The People.

I get The Observer, The Independent on Sunday, The Sunday Telegraph, The Mail on Sunday, Sunday Mirror and The People.

Keep an eye out for The People this weekend as it's re-launching its magazine!

Usually the Sunday Express in my house. Used to get the Sunday Business Post here in Ireland as well, but none of us bother with that one any more.

Living in Ireland, I usually get the Sunday Business Post,
althought the weekend edition of the Irish Times usually has
enough reading for me.

Joking about the papers being like comics is one thing... but your joke is outdated, as The Dandy no longer exists. It folded in December 2012.

It has to be The Mail - with its excellent magazine Event.

The broadsheets are just a terrible waste of paper.

Ugh. That magazine is NOT an improvement. It doesn't even have full TV listings for Monday to Saturday any more, despite claiming to have a bigger and brighter, easier to read TV guide. Too many previews and only prime time listings. Only Sunday gets proper listings. Also, the horoscopes are AWOL, so that'll piss people off.

Read it last Sunday, sadly; The Fail is a non-Event for which trees are felled needlessly.

I used to get the Business Post, but I don't buy it any more as I don't have time. Never buy the Irish times. I sometimes get the Irish Examiner but they don't have a Sunday edition.

Joking about the papers being like comics is one thing... but your joke is outdated, as The Dandy no longer exists. It folded in December 2012.
The Beano still exists though and it makes more sense than some of the crap printed in the papers, especially the red tops I ain't got time for serious papers lol

Another vote for Other....The Observer in my house. The Review section's usually well worth a read.

A bit confusing in the poll. The Sunday Mail is a Scottish national (Sunday version of the Daily Record) which is of course completely different to the Mail on Sunday.

The Observer for me, I avoid the tabloids with their screaming headlines about soap stars and footballers.

Sunday Mirror, Mail on Sunday, Sunday Times, Independent on Sunday, Sunday Telegraph and Observer.

And @Jefferson, before you ask, no I don't run my own newsagents, but I do present 2 radio shows on a Sunday and the above provide invaluable material for said shows!

The Sunday Times. It's actually quite a treat just to just laid back with a cup of coffee and read the newspaper on sunday. The Culture supplement is my favourite because of the book reviews.

Years ago I used to buy Mail on Sunday, News of the World, Sunday Express, Sunday Mirror. Now I am down to the Mail but I only get it if I am in a Waitrose on Sunday as you get it free if you have their loyalty card. I don't get it otherwise. I don't actually like the actual paper but I like the Event supplement and You supplement.

Sunday Mirror (excellent, except for the highly cliched Carole Malone).

Sunday Times (keeps us going till Tuesday. Don't bother with Appointments or Driving).

Wales On Sunday (utter crap, but an excellent sports section that goes right down to local level).

A good point which rather invalidates the poll as I assume those voting for the Sunday Mail think they are actually voting for the Mail on Sunday (unless they live in Scotland of course)

The Sun on Sunday.

Excellent value, people always slagging off the red tops, but will no doubt find themselves talking or contributing in forum threads about stories they have broken.....seems a but strange to me,

They are always great with their football coverage, columnists on a Sunday are so so, not as good as midweek with Jeremy Clarkson, Katie Hopkins, Rod Liddell and the always excellent Ally Ross TV review page.

I get the tittle tattle that magazines like Heat will lead with the folowing week, I get to read about celebs acting like sleaze balls and they stil have 'proper' news although not as indepth as the broadsheets.

I loved the NOTW as many others did seeing as it was the biggest selling paper in the UK. Recently The Sun on Sunday has been mirroring it more and more with some exellent exposes and even the Fake Sheik.

Not often I get one but if I do then it's either The Observer or The Sunday Post neither of which are specifically mentioned.
