  1. Is it me, or does the Inquirer have more book reviews than most newspapers of the same size? Not that I'm complaining!

  3. No it's not you, Laurie. The Inquirer does review more books than most papers. A lot of people don't realize that, because we don't have a separate book section. But we make better use of our space, I think, and use a lot of it for book reviews.
