Newspaper book sections are shrinking. Does anyone care?

US News has a story that says since advertising dollars took a dive more than a year ago, newspapers across the country have scaled back book sections. Some have cut their Sunday book reviews by 25 percent to 50 percent since 2000.

\”The old book section was flabby and not well edited,\” says Mercury-News Editor David Yarnold. \”We took a lemon and made lemonade.\”
