how romantic! Nothing like roasting chestnuts over the want ads. Paper burns much hotter and faster than regular wood, potentially damaging your flue. Paper is also very messy, and as burning pieces of it float up into the chimney, you risk torching the creosote in the flue and having a real problem on your hands. In order for a newspaper to burn effectively like a log, you need to be able to compress the paper bundle to a density which could only be acheived by a machine no one should have in their home.

Read the paper, burn wood.
