Over the past 10 years, book-review sections in many American newspapers have gone on life support. At least one major newspaper that once spent close to $100,000 annually on book reviews now budgets zero for book reviews. One result is that the same review often runs in more papers than ever before. Do newer digital ventures make up for the print decline in either space or pay?
