All of the newspaper sentences are fine.
I read parts of the newspaper everyday.
All of the #2 sentences are the same.

If #1 is a survey question, you might want to be more specific in your alternatives:
5-6 times a week
2-4 times a week
less than weekly
"Sometimes," "Often" and "time to time" are very vague terms.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
