US: Chicago Tribune eliminates book review section

US: Chicago Tribune eliminates book review section

The Chicago Tribune announced this week that it will no longer have its stand-alone book review section. The Tribune's book review section was one of the few remaining in the United States.

It will now combine books and media into a section in the Saturday paper. The "books and media" section will include comics, movie theater ads and the weather page. The book section was moved out of the Sunday paper and into the Saturday edition last year.

Other recently eliminated sections include The New York Times' stand-alone Metro section. Metro stories are now included in the paper's first section, just after international and national news. The Los Angeles Times eliminated its stand-alone book review section in 2007.
