A new book section for the Chicago Tribune

Seeking to make some more money off subscribers, as well as to fill the gaping hole that is their book content, the Chicago Tribune has announced they are launching a new kind of book section.  Let’s see how it goes.

Personally, I think $99 is a bit steep, but it also includes invites to events and an actual book.  I’d be stoked to subscribe if I didn’t think it would get stolen from the lobby of my building, where papers are delivered. Still, it’s an exciting announcement and a big leap for the Tribune.  Kudos to them for remembering that people still care about books.

I’ll be looking into the online version to see if it’s Kindle compatible. TBD!
