Book Coverage As Premium Content

By posted at 4:00 pm on January 24, 2012 2

The Chicago Tribune is rolling out a new premium books section for $99 a year. The Printers Row offering (named for a Chicago neighborhood) “will feature 24 pages of book reviews, author interviews and Chicago-focused literary news, along with a weekly bonus book of short fiction.” You can either feel validated (special HBO-style “premium” section for readers!) or marginalized (so few people care about this that you have to pay extra if you want it.)

    If the New York Times offered the Book Review, daily reviews, and daily book news as a separate iPad app that was $5 a month, I would consider dropping the full Times app for the new one.
