The Sunday WashPost Shrinks

The Sunday WashPost has now lost Bookworld. They were one of the few major papers to still have a separate section for books and the bit that's been delegated to the end of the Outlook section is pretty miniscule. They had earlier lost the Sunday Source section and before that combined the Style and Arts sections. The problem is that people stop taking the Sunday paper every time some part is removed and so the paper is made smaller and then more people stop taking it. I don't know where it's going.

I was early to PT and read the Sunday WashPost from 12/14 which had the best children's books for the year. Gaiman's The Graveyard Book was in the pre-teen list and Doctorow's Little Brother and Pratchett's Nation were in the teen list. I don't think they'll have room for anything like that next year.
