I was told Wednesday that the Books section is likely moving to the back page of the Sunday business section and will be just one page, not one and a half. This starts next Sunday (Sept. 29).
This necessitates some changes, as I’m losing a lot of print space. It means multiple shorter reviews or fewer lengthy ones — all without compromising the quality of the reviewers. Right now I run three to five reviews a week; one page means two or three. Odds are I will schedule more book giveaways because the flow of books I get won’t drop. That’s good news for those of you who like to win stuff.
There is unlimited space on the blog, so I’m trying to figure out to how to best use it. Run extended versions of book reviews here maybe? If the demand is high enough, I am open to a trial run.
This is a good time to re-evaluate the Books section and the blog. What do you like ? What do you dislike? What would you like to see? I am open to all your comments and ideas. If you have friends or family who read the Books section in print but not online, please ask them and report back. I would appreciate that.
I genuinely want to please you, readers. The Books section is for you. Your opinions matter to me, so please share them.
