Where are the book reviews?
Those of us who love to read, usually like to read book reviews. That’s how we build our list of books-to-read-sometime.
Many newspapers and magazines have cut back or eliminated book reviews. NPR and CNBC are moving in to fill the void a bit. NPR.org is adding weekly reviews and hiring six new reviewers. (Will they read all day? What a great job!)
CNBC has launched its own book blog, Bullish on Books. It will focus on business, management, and personal finance titles and coordinate with the authors who appear on the cable news channel.
Of course there are other book reviews sources to be found on the internet and still some in print. Our librarians try to keep up with new titles too and many new popular titles are in our Hot Picks section and in our Staff Picks blog. Or, next time you’re in one of our locations, pick up the latest issue of BookPage, a free monthly publication, compliments of KPL.
