Adding newspaper to your compost pile

It's been helpful to have a 5 gallon bucket filled with newspaper and junk mail. I like how the newspaper seems to hold the moisture in, even in all this heat were having! I also like to shred my junk mail, (when I have time, usually I just rip it up and throw it in the compost pile), and add it to the compost pile.

Today was around 115 degrees outside and I went to the compost pile a couple times to add items and only had to spray it down about 4-5 times. Sounds like a lot I know, however, when your out working in the yard it's just second nature to throw some water on the pile.
