Books Good Weekend, Fellow Books Editors!

Galleycat says that, due to cutbacks, the Tribune Company might cut the books sections of a number of papers that it owns. And also the Newark Star-Ledger has killed its Sunday books section, with occasional space provided from now on for a book review or two. No doubt the reviews published will be of local books that are completely uninteresting to everyone but overworked arts editors. This is great news.
Also, this is only related in that it’s about books, but today The New York Times covered a $130 ebook reader (The miBook, it’s called) with a color display that also plays music and works as an organizer. This is probably closer to what an ebook reader will wind up being: multimedia, but still book-y.
