The Guardian print edition going from three sections to two sections beginning Monday. 

Readers will notice a change in Monday’s Guardian.

Beginning on Monday, the Monday and Tuesday Guardians will be published in two sections, unlike the three sections of the past. 

The change is being done for printing efficiency reasons and will not result in a reduction in the number of pages. Monday’s Guardian will carry 22 pages, the same number as last Monday.

With the switch to two sections on Mondays and Tuesdays, readers will find the Features section beginning on page B5. The In Memoriam page remains in its normal place, which is on the inside page of the back of the second section.

The Wednesday to Saturday newspapers will continue to carry three and four sections.

What I don't like about the Guardian is no TV schedule.I always checked that.Oh,and by the way,I hate seeing those sale flyers all over the countryside!!! Such liter!!!!!

    I may be missing something here but I don't understand how you can remove a section and still have the same number of pages . There obviously has to be a loss of content somewhere in order to remove a whole section does there not . If there is a reduction in content will that result in savings to the consumer .

      Hi Joe, Last Monday, May 26, for example, The Guardian printed a 20-page paper. There were 8 in the A section; 6 in the B section; and 6 in the C section. Tomorrow, Monday, June 2, there will be 22 pages -- two more than last week, but only in two sections. There will be 8 in the A section like last week, and 14 in the B section. The reader is not losing any content, but our printing press will be able to run more efficiently. I hope that clears it up. Jocelyne Lloyd, web editor

      Really Joe, it is just a combination of two sections into one. Jocelyne has explained it clearly. The split into three sections was always arbitrary and the switch to two is just the same. It all could be put into one section but that might prove a bit awkward to fold over/hold/manipulate.
