Here is a lighthearted quiz to see if you know which national Sunday and daily newspapers sell the most copies. The eight most popular Sundays and ten most popular dailies are chosen (with figures for July 2012).
But this is followed by a challenge to analyse what kind of writing style and stories our church publications are telling, and to determine which of the national newspapers we come closest to. Even if we are uneasy about what some newspapers say and the means they employ to discover their information, there is still much to learn from how the professionals go about their work of communication.

These notes have been updated in September 2012 so that circulations quoted are up-to-date and take account of the Sunday position without the News of the World but now with the Sunday edition of the Sun.
