A fun read

Advantages: Free TV guide on a Saturday
Disadvantages: Not suitable for "serious" news issues
I purchase the Sun a couple of times a week (every Saturday, and then one or two days in the week). Generally this newspaper is a typical tabloid, with quite a lot of stories on celebrities - if you are after the latest gossip on Jordon's love life, this newspaper probably has something in on it.
Price wise, this is reasonable, and you can occasionally pick it up for 20p in the week. However usually it is around 35p on the weekday and 60p on a Saturday. The benefit of buying it on a Saturday is that it contains a free TV guide, which you would usually have to pay a minimum of 50p for. It also contains a good guide to all the weekends football matches.
The Sun tends to go for the more sensationalist approach to stories, so I would not recommend it if you are after detailed and serious news. However if you want something light-hearted, and more focused on celebrities, then this is the perfect newspaper. They do cover the main issues and news items. However you will often find all sorts of other stories that do not make the broadsheet newspapers. Football coverage in the Sun is very good.
Summary: A fun newspaper, but not if you want to read serious news
