You are not alone. I too have a love of the paper, as well as does a 99-year-old lady across the street from me. I have enjoyed my cup of coffee and the paper for years. I am an early riser and when my kids were home (all five) that was my time for peace and quiet. Now that I am retired, I still rise 5-5:30 a.m. and start looking for my paper. If it is late, I get a call about 6:30 a.m. from my neighbor to see if I got my paper. I enjoy the comics as well as the puzzle page. I read all the paper and save the puzzles for breakfast. Ah, the simple pleasures of having a newspaper.
