What do you read?

The other day, during a now-infamous interview with CBS newswoman Katie Couric, Gov. Sarah Palin was asked to name which newspapers and magazines she regularly reads. Palin could not come up with a single title.

I thought it was a good question, because what people choose to read tells a lot of about their interests and the way they think about the issues.

I tried the same question on county commissioner Bill Monaghan.

Monaghan, a retired businessman, told me he has three newspapers delivered to his house: The Wall Street Journal, the Lorain Morning Journal and the Sandusky Register. He also reads Fortune magazine and Newsweek.

I'll answer the question myself: I read the Cleveland Plain Dealer (particularly the sports section), the Wall Street Journal and the Sandusky Register. I also read Reason magazine and Wired, and a variety of blogs, and I listen to NPR.

So, readers, who do you read? Where do you get your news?
