What's wrong with this sentence and how could I improve it to make it more effective?


- Do you use your news magazines digitally as well as printed?

Digitally is an adverb and printed is an adjective.  The adverb modifies the verb.  How are you using them?  The adjective modified a noun.  What kind of newspapers?  Since you are linking the two together with as well as, they should both be the same kind of word.  I think that as well as is wordy and can be taken to mean is one as good as the other, instead of do you do both things


Do you read both digital and printed news magazines?
