I suppose we could call this good news for Booklist–less competition?–but really, it’s a dismal trend that seems to be accelerating (“AP Ends Book Reviews, LA Times Also Makes Book Changes,” by Dermot McEvoy):

In a move that echoed the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s decision earlier this year to eliminate its book review editor, the Associated Press, according to Editor & Publisher, has decided to discontinue its book review package. “AP is revamping its lifestyles coverage,” Linda M. Wagner told E&P, “to focus more resources on topics like food and parenting, and as a result we are discontinuing the book-review package that has moved through that department.”

According to Wagner, the AP “remains as committed as ever” to covering books, but will do so with reviews and author features in its arts and entertainments departments.
