The big influence of four book review magazines

Topic: 

Sarah Johnson writes "A recent article in Slate reports on the "big four" among book industry trade journals - namely, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, and Booklist. Their influence might finally be waning, says the article - and reviewers for Kirkus and PW are toning down the harshness of their reviews as a result."

Don't forget who writes reviews for Library Journal and Book List, we do. I have been reviewing for LJ for a couple of years and for other magazines such as Choice for many years.
