book review

Slate likes big books and it cannot lie... The all-digital publication will be launching a new monthly book review, which will appear on its homepage on the first weekend of every month.

The first issue will be out in full tomorrow, but two sample book reviews by Allison Benedikt and Wesley Morris have already been published today. The new section will review both fiction and non-fiction and will be produced by a mixture of staffers and freelancers.

In an blog post announcing the launch, Slate writes "Over the past few years, newspapers, magazines, and media organizations have shrunk book coverage substantially, shuttering standalone book review sections and lowering the budget and editorial energy devoted to books. Well, here at Slate, we pride ourselves on going against the conventional wisdom."
