Typical sections found in newspapers and magazines

"One thing I always read in the paper is the obituaries; it's so interesting to read about the lives of well-known people. I also usually read the leader (or editorial); it helps me form my opinion on things. Although national newspapers give you all the important news, I find that if you just want to sell your car or something, the classified ads in a local paper is the best place. But at the weekend I just love the Sunday papers. Most British Sunday papers have supplements with articles on travel, food and fashion and so on, and that keeps me occupied for hours. Last week there was a feature on new technology in one of them; it was fascinating. My teenage daughter prefers magazines, especially the agony columns. I just can't imagine writing to an agony aunt. It amazes me how people are prepared to discuss their most intimate problems publicly".
