Here we go again ...

... LA Times to Fold Standalone Book Review. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

Doesn't it tell you something about the people who run newspapers that just about the first thing they think of eliminating when they want to save money is book coverage? Then they'll run a scare piece about the decline of reading - as if they actually care.


  1. How can they keep getting it so wrong? People who still read books are likely to be the same people who read newspapers. Duh! Sounds like shooting yourself in the foot to me.

  2. Sadly, people like myself did not do enough. If we're going to spread the blame, I think I should accept my share of it.
