The Chicago Sun-Times has an article commenting on the newspapers’ shrinking book review sections.
What newspaper publishers and editors don’t seem to get is that people who read books also tend to read newspapers. Our fates are tied together. Book readers often make up our most educated and informed newspaper audience. While they’ll throw out the daily paper within minutes of reading, book readers tend to keep books sections longer. They’ll stack them for weeks or tuck them into their purses and shoulder bags, foisting them upon bookstore clerks to help them find their next great read.
