My experience of the business side of journalism is that the people in charge spend too much time trying to attract new readers. So, when seeking to economize, they usually decide that book coverage can be cut, because the readers they seek to attract aren't interested in books, forgetting that the people who are interested in books tend to be interested in reading other things as well. In this city, on Sunday's, The Inquirer's principal competition is the New York Times, in large part because the Times still has a stand-alone book section. But that section — for which I once wrote — is a shadow of its former self. The Inquirer could easily and inexpensively put out a competitive counterpart.
