Sun-Times Won’t Be Outdone by the Tribune
Posted by: Keir Graff

Now the bad news. The Chicago Sun-Times is taking the axe to its book section. From Critical Mass:

Just when it seemed the cutbacks in newspaper book sections had struck bone, they’ve gone deeper yet this month. Starting on December 30th the Chicago Sun-Times’ book section – formerly run by Cheryl L. Reed, now by Teresa Budasi — is being reduced by half, and moved from the Controvesy section of the newspaper to the Show section. All reviews are being reduced by half, as well, to 250 to 300 words.

I like to think this had nothing to do with the fact that I was recently profiled in said publication. If I’m wrong, I’d like to apologize for not selling more papers. (Hey, I bought as many as I could carry!)
