One of the Last Of the Few Sunday Newspaper Book Sections Will Soon Be Gone
The Washington Post reported today that it plans to close its stand-alone magazine Book World as of mid-February.
In dropping one of the few remaining stand-alone book sections in American newspapers, Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli said that the coverage will be shifted to the Style section and a revamped Outlook section. Shea said that The Post would publish about three-quarters of the roughly 900 reviews it has carried each year. The change will take effect Feb. 22.
