Unlike Daniel I’ve never had to take the Age on the train with me, it’s always been a spread out over the table paper for me, but I’m looking forward to the new ‘premium compact’ (ie tabloid) size of The Age. We have a very large table but it’s still an issue every morning if Rae and the kids want to eat breakfast at the same time of me.
Being somewhat of a traditionalist I’ll miss The Age’s broadsheet format during the week, it’s a little piece of history slipping away. I’ll await the new format with great interest on Monday. I wonder if the new size will arrest my move towards reading it on a tablet.
