Still Think Print Is Dead? This Woman’s Home Contains Over 25,000 Newspapers!

These days, conventional wisdom says print is a thing of the past. But if you already wrote off newsprint as an obsolete medium, you might want to eat your words after you see Mary Peterson’s home and the more than 25,000 newspapers inside.

Yep. That’s a two, a five, and three zeros. Looks like print has a pulse after all!

One glance at Peterson’s small home in Santa Rosa, CA should be enough to shut up anyone who said the printed word was in decline. Thousands upon thousands of newspapers are stacked inside Peterson’s home, an enduring testament to print’s timeless staying power—and that’s not counting the thousands more in her shed!

Read ’em and weep, digital marketing executives. The print industry is here to stay.

Those old, outmoded dinosaurs at The New York Times must be doing something right, because in this house, newsprint is king, and there’s not a computer in sight! From the towering piles of newspapers in the bedroom to the hundreds of newspapers filling up the bathtub, it’s clear that Mary Peterson isn’t going to be canceling her subscriptions anytime soon.

So call off the coroner, because in this household, old-fashioned ink-stained journalism is alive and well. From the looks of things, it will be for a very, very long time.
