Besides reading my hometown Nytimes, I like to browse the Guardian of Britain, Globe and Mail of Canada, and the English editions of Finland's Helsingin Sanomat, Norway's Afterposten and Sweden's The Local. Preferably in the print editions. Not much a fan of online translaters so I stick to English language press. (Yes, I know I should find other hobbies, this vice can be time consuming.)

Anyone else like foreign newspapers? Recommendations?

I read Google News (UK Edition) which has contributions from newspapers worldwide written in English. It gives good coverage of UK news and International news. Science news in PhysOrg, then for the more geeky news I scan through Reddit. Though at the moment it is very boring with too much coverage of the American election. Interestingly about 95% of Reddit contributors hate McCain and Palin.

I like the Daily Mail (UK) for funny pix of celebrities looking bad.

I also use google news for local news because it gives you a number of choices of source on any one story.

Yes indeed
Le Monde (France)
Kathmerini (Greece)
Il Mondo (Italy) although all the commentary gets irritating
