1. 1 does not mean he reads the same newspaper every day! It means he reads each day's newspaper.

2 is fine, and it can mean the same as 1 or it can mean he reads whatever newspaper is handy each day.

3 is also fine. It means he reads more than one newspaper each day -- the current edition of each one every day.
